I've been shooting the same land now for 10years its about 1000acres with mostly arable land and a few smallish woods.
I've heard rumors of deer being around but in ten years never seen so much as a track and i regularly pigeon shoot it, walk the dog round, lamp rabbits there.
Then one morning in January I went out with the dog to do a bit of pigeon decoying it was around 8am the weather was crap it was drizzling and there was some mist in the air but looked like it might improve with time. After building myself a hide i was stood 30yards out into the field placing a pattern out when I looked up and saw a roe buck wondering across the field around 150yards away from me calmly strolling not a care in the world.
That morning has made me really want to get into stalking, its not all about the kill but its about being out there and seeing such fantastic animals.
So after finally seeing my first deer on that land after ten years in February roost shooting some pigeons i stumbled across two muntys!!
Just thought i'de share this will you.
