I took a nice buck on Tuesday evening from an area that I have picked up recently. He appeared from no where, as they often do. After a swift assesment with the bins I barked at him to stop him perfectly broadside at about 120yards. A split second later the deed was done. He reacted well to the shot and staggered 10 yards into some cover where I saw him keel over and drop. Watching him for a couple of minutes there was no movement so I made my way over to him and found him dead where he fell. A very nice mature six pointer. I made light work of the gralloch and washed my hands in a nearby drainage dike. It was only then that I realised that my wedding ring was no longer on my finger!!! A frantic search in fading light proved fruitless and I called back in the day yesterday and had a good mooch about in the dike and surrounding area all to no avail. We are insured and a claim has gone in but these things are priceless. Does any body have a good metal detector to higher in the Doncaster area? He was another big bodied beast with a larder weight of 48Lbs.FM.
