Thread: East Sussex Roe Buck

    East Sussex Roe Buck

    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.

    And this morning

    Love those dark antlers mate!
    Owning a gun or knife and not using it, is akin to not sleeping with your girlfriend to keep her neat and tidy for the next bloke.
