Good things come to those who wait, this evening i stalked a lovely buck nearly all the way along the edge of a wood. The buck content on eating young shoots and scratching off the last of the velvet from its antlers had no idea I was trying to crawl parallel to it to keep a visual as it moved in and out of cover on the wood side of a fence.
Eventually I got in a position that I couldn't follow any further without obviously giving away my position so I waited in hope that the buck would jump the fence into my field. I waited ages thinking there was no hope when I saw the buck clear the fence 150yds away. A perfect side on stance. The shot dropped him on the spot.
The buck on inspection was in cracking condition and his antlers were perfectly symmetrical. He has the best head Ive shot so I would love to put it on my wall but Ive no idea how to go about it.
How easy is it to DIY a trophy head?????
