decided yesterday evening to take a run up to some stalking ground i have in perthshire last night, it was lashing down with rain untill about 8pm when it started to ease up a bit.
was having a wonder around one of the farms and was spying a biggish wheat field when i spotted a doe walking from one wood to another , as i was watching her through the glasses a beast ran across my view on taking my glasses down i could see this beast running towards the little wood so i put the glasses on him and nearly fell over!!!!!!
here was a thing that looked big and was going back, as i sat and watched it going towards the wood , on the edge of the wood iw a willow hedge and i had already noticed a few weeks ago that something had been rubbing hell out of the trees and the farmer had mentioned it too. any way this beast causualy walked over to them had a wee rub agaist one of the willow then started nibbling the leaves of it.
so that was enough for me,
so i stalked around the field as i did the b uck wondered into the little wood this gave me a little time as there was a high seat not far from the wood which might give a chance of a shot if i got to it.
anyway i got with in twenty yards when the roe jumped out of the wood and look away from me which gave me chance to get down and ready for a a shot ,
i just got down on to me knee and the buck turned and looked at me with i had the cross hairs on the 30.06 on him and squeezed of the shot.
he jumped about 5ft forward in to the standing crop and never moved again.
i gave it a couple of min before i went over , went over to him and found this my mate was with me and he says its the biggest he has ever seen and i must agree with him its the BIGGEST i have ever seen.
