Home for 24hrs before I am back at it with another group from Finland on the Fallow. Both Robin and myself have another 4 clients tonight and will not be home until Sunday.
In the meantime I thought the members would be interested in this old chap, shot on Sunday evening on its way to a rutting stand on my lease in West Sussex. Big bodied beast with a terrible head, and in the past 4 years of having the lease I have never seen him before. Although I knew there was a mature buck in the area, it was very difficult to know where we would have the best chance of seeing him, as it is a thick forestry block.
Further to this he also took a reasonable buck on another area I have nearby, and a pricket on Robins area.
All together over 4 days with 4 clients (8 stalks) we took 8 bucks and there was 2 misses, so we should have had 10 beasts. Rut still not fully in and very little action in the way of grunting, so I hope this week it really kicks off.
