Well i have 3 days off now to rest up, for the past 2 weeks i have been mixing stalking and fishing with clients, sometimes 2 stalks and fishing in the same day, i am knackered!
But the last 6 days have been very interesting, i have been filmed guiding an American Hunter for a program called North American Whitetail Deer, the film was intended to show the roe rut and stalk of a roe buck.
The guy is actually known as Dr Deer in the US, and he is a VERY knowledgeable guy.
It was a learning curve for me i have to admit, its difficult as it is to stalk with 2 guys, but 3 in total, its almost impossible, but not quite!
What i didnt appreciate was the actual filming, we missed the best part of dawn as we had to wait for 30 mins and at the end of the day also finished 30 mins early as the camera just showed grainy footage.
If i ever decide to go down the filming route i know exactly how to make it an interesting film.
But the calling went well, and without giving too much away the stalks went very well, but waiting in ambush didn't, which is actually opposite to how i thought it would pan out.
The week ended last night with me cooking (and being filmed!) them loin of venison in a red wine and redcurrant sauce, out for a quick final stalk and then up the pub to celebrate.
Once the show is aired i will post up lots of pics but for now here are the guys waiting for the deer to appear.
