I got this murder buck at last light on Monday. I had spotted him a couple of times in the doe season. He would come come out of the wood and feed in a new plantation following a very similar route. On Monday there was no action in the area that I was stalking, so at last light I moved to where I thought he might be. Sure enough he has out. I crept through the bushes towards him and I think we saw me, but was not sure what I was and started moving even closer. I had to shoot him at a slight angle as he was becoming nervous and was just about to make a run for it. The bullet entered through the chest, hit the lungs and exited behind the other shoulder. Interestingly the buck showed little reaction to the shot. It run for about 50m and collapsed dead.
The owner of the land was over the moon I took the buck, that he gave me a free stalk. Also I got a good price for the venison and an unusual head for my wall...what a result!!!
