We had a couple of lads off the SD out on Saturday Stu (Ezzy 6.5) and Ross (R.Atkinson).
Still some rutting activity going on with some grunting in the woods.
We failed to get Ross a buck Andy took him to an area where we knew there was a good buck rutting but just had a stack of does come out.
Stu sat on his own and shot a lame black buck which we had seen earlier in the afternoon.
I sat in another spot with Max and at very last light had a deer come down the track not ten yards from Max and the bottom of the seat.
It was very very lame on the back end but it was that dark I needed the binos to id it even at that range. After a quick glance I spotted some antlers grabbed the rifle and shot it with my Blaser K95 6.5x57r.
With further inspection I was real glad I shot him his one leg was healed but very crippled I'd say he had been in a fence for some time.
His stomach was full but he was very thin and light for that age of animal.
So nearly a perfect night, sorry Ross we will try harder next time.
