When I finished my last Roe stalk with Wayne he mentioned that he would be taking some lads out for a muntjac stalk over Easter and asked if I wanted to come along, unfortunately I wasnít able to make it as I had already planned to be away over Easter. Anyway on 14/Apr I got a call about 9am from Wayne to say that he was going out again that evening if I wanted to come along. Didnít have to think about that one so agreed to meet up at Andyís about 4.45pm.
I arrived on time and met up with Stuart and Andy and we set off to the stalking ground where we met up with Wayne and the other lads. Wayne took the other lads to their locations and Andy and I set off stalking towards our high seat. Andy mentioned that he had loaned his stix to one of the other lads but said that if the opportunity arose we would sort something out. On the way we heard some rustling in some bushes beside the track we were on. We thought that it was a muntjac but didnít get to see it. We carried on, Andy was checking the bank on the far side of a newly planted area, which he said looked like a promising spot. After checking for a few minutes Andy spotted a muntjac and said to set my self up on a stump just in front of us. Andy gave a description of the location of the muntjack and it moved just as I was trying to located it so made it easier to spot. Anyway I set up and took the shot. It fell pretty much on the spot, I reloaded, then we waited for a while before we went to collect it. Andy ranaged it at 135 yards. I was delighted to have gotten a shot and a kill, a large doe. Andy Gralloched it and we headed on to the high seat. About 7.30pm. Didnít see anything from the high seat other than lots of pheasants. We met up with the other lads later, a quick cuppa and a chat and then all headed back home.
Thanks Andy for the stalk, wouldnít have had the shot without your efforts. Thanks again to Wayne and Andy for the great evening out. That is now a fallow buck, a roe buck and a muntjac doe in my last 3 outings with Andy and Wayne (3 out of 3 half day stalks).
Wayne has the photos, so will post some later when I get them or perhaps Wayne will if he gets a chance.
