A couple of days ago I decided to take advantage of a little sunshine that appeared and headed off to a new permission. On arrival I was met by the sight of a roe buck and doe standing side by side on the crest of the hill. Nice to see but not on the cull plan as we have an establishing population here in East Sussex. After parking up I stalked the perimeter of the wood and out of the corner of my eye I spot another lone roe buck. Looking through the binos I see a mature buck with a very tidy set of antlers. I know where I will be monday morning!! I back away and set of towards another block of woodland where I had seen fallow emerging on a previous visit. Standing 130 m from the wood with my back to a small copse and the light beginning to fade, i spied a set of antlers rocking to and fro, a fallow buck trotting towards me. I watched as he continued stopping 50 yards in front. Lifting the rifle I steadied myself and took him freehand squeezing off the trigger. Thwack!! He ran 30 yards and was down. Giving him a minute I then walked over to test for eye blink reaction . Nothing ! No eye !! Anyway took him back to the chiller and gralloched. No camera unfortunately but did take a couple of the head.
