This afternoons stalk i thought i would revisit a small clear fell where i had shot a doe
a couple of weeks back that led to a thread with me having to call a friend in with his dog
I approached as quietely as i could with snow on the ground still here in somerset .
not so much a crunch as you took your next step but a compacting sound. as i got nearer
i spotted a roe doe making her way across the middle and not far behind a doe follower .
The plan was to take both if the chance presented itself i was about 25 yards from the highseat
so i decided to try to make it there if i could if not a shot shots of the sticks would suffice
I crept forward step by step watching both deer as i did so the trusty GWP closely behind me
I managed to get to the seat sat the dog up and climbed steadily up the seat
turning over the wooden seat that had five inches of snow on top of it and settling down to take
a shot .
I had taken a towel to sit on but decided to use this instead to lie on the the bar for a steadier
shot off the front rail the two does were ranged at 115 yards .
I flattened the first the second then ran right handed and stopped behind cover no shot on
she then moved a few more yards and stopped again the 30 .06 barked again she was down
at about 130 yards i looked up and there were about sixteen deer running allways
I thought **** need to take a few more really but not keen on the 1/4 mile drag back .
I let things settle down still had two out in front of me at around 140 yds and three way out left
ranged with the lecias at 200 yds i nearly dropped one of these but decided not to get carried away
so decided to wait and see if the two in front would present a shot one was a buck and a doe .
the doe presented a shot so i flattened her too .
well pleased with my afternoons work the work now began a 1/4 mile drag back to the truck
I managed to drag all three together with the sticks threaded through there legs the first hundred
yards but i dont think id be here writing this now if i had tried to keep that up .
so dragged the biggest one 150 yards then went back and dragged the other two together the same
and kept doing this untill i got to the truck . absolutely knackered .
