Wow Im off the mark!
Today I started my deerstalking acccount with a fine pricket.I met my guide and thirty minutes in the deed was done. Having stumbled on a herd of forty plus deer we managed to find the only young buck among them. Waiting for around fifteen minutes they started to move in different directions, my buck among a small group of around ten. Around 100 yards out he presented me with a full broadside shot. Richard told me to ready myself. The deer was in my sights walking at a slow pace. He called an alarm, the pricket froze the trigger pulled and he dropped on the spot. "He's Dead" I was informed.
Wow the longest few seconds of my life! Everything I learned finally put in to practice. My heart was thumping like a drum at what had just happened,my first deer!
