What fantastic month it has been , for the first time ive managed to hit the roe rut smack on time ,
ive succsessfully called 8 bucks , 3 of which might go medal , a couple of 'nice' bucks and the rest cull animals and to top it off this one graced us with his presence at dawn this morning.
' The Big'un ' as we've called him because he has eluded us for the last 4 years , always being where you can't shoot him , i could have had a poke at him last year but i had no back stop , but he fell to the call and my good mates rifle .
considering ive only shot 1 buck this rut and have given the rest away does'nt bother me a jott , the experience and the smiles of friends faces means more to me than pulling the trigger 100 times over !!!
the rut is now over in my neck of the woods , this buck was the only one we saw and we seemed to have caught him with his pants down !
we also had a drive around a couple of farms i stalk over and not a buck in sight , in fact didnt even see a doe !
so time to dust the calls and put them away ready for next year .
