So Ive have not put a post on for a while. Why!
I have been busy doing some stalking, butchery and gamefairs. But Ive been wondering the past few weeks. DO I get as bigger a buzz asI used too, talking a deer.
Answer Yes and No
I went up to Dundee show the Deer Assassin how to skin andbutcher deer in return I took some lovely carcasses home as well as shootingsome of the best roe bucks I have ever seen. Now that was Exciting the land wastotal different to what im used to stalkingon the west coast. Did not have to work as hard to shoot the deer but it camewith its own challenges, like big open fields (not use to that) We shot manydeer in 3 days and saw a hole lot more. I enjoyed meeting Deer Assassin andteaching the butchery more than shooting. Roe stalking is a very solitary passtime for me and Im usually on my own when I shoot one, thus its seems to be NOto a buzz as it for meat for the freezer as Im not a trophy hunter.
But in the last month Ive have taken two great guys off theSD, stalking for roe bucks up north and this is a challenge in its own right.
The two guys in question are inexperienced stalkers. This iswhere Ive found the BUZZ again. On both occasions I found a buck and they wereboth taken.
Wow Wow Wow the Buzz has returned it was a real rush seeingtwo guys taking their first ever roe bucks. Not only did I workhard but there did as well and they deserved it. Seeing how excited they were as well as their hearts almost popping out their chests plus that big grin. It was priceless. (If your reading this Neil no hugging next time )
We are not talking trophy bucks we are talking first ever roebucks and it bought back good memorise of my first roe.
Cant wait for the 20 plus red stags to be taken on myBeginners Courses later this year. Especially when the novice gets to take a 16plus pointer to hang on the wall. Sweet
My Buzz is back so the answer is YES and I look forward to talking someone stalking again.
A happy man again
