Decided to go out and look for a roe buck in a small orchard between two large woods. Although I shoot a fair few fallow and boar through the season our roe population here is just establishing nicely. The owner had been seeing 'some of the little ones' recently and i counted 9 weeks to the start of the season so I thought why not go and have a look. Well Im glad I did. After hearing a shot from each wood I heard a rustling a little later and a roe buck come around the corner right under the seat. He walked 20 yards away directly in line with the seat. As I leaned forward my creaky seat alerted him. Glancing over his shoulder I decided to take a low neck shot with the 308 125 Nosler Bt which dropped him. Not the most challenging distance in the world but enjoyable with the speed it all happenened.
