Thread: Welsh Buck

  1. #1

    Welsh Buck

    Up at 5 this morning, cuppa to wake me up and then off on the short drive to my patch of ground just over the border, it was a lovely morning with the dawn chorus in full voice and the sun doing its best to thaw the frost and remove the last stubborn patches of snow.
    i stalked slowly around the whole farm with no luck at all until I came to an east facing bank with gorse bushes offering shelter and there I spotted a group of 3 does feeding, I got on the floor and covered them with the 25-06, they were totally unaware of me and then a buck appeared from behind the gorse, he was huge and at 150 yds I was sure of the shot.
    I aimed at his shoulder and sent the 100gn SP on its way, he dropped on the spot and didn't even twitch.
    There was quite a bit of meat damage but I didn't mind as I reckon if he's not silver he is certainly a very good bronze and by far the biggest welsh buck I've shot.

    Well done! any pics? If he does make a medal I think he'll be one of the first to be measured as such! The 2012 English/Welsh Roe review shows no medal heads from Wales measured by CIC.
    The 2011 Review shows 1 silver:
    "For the first time, we recorded a medal head from Wales an excellent silver medal at 120.52 CIC points."

    Congratulations, but where is the photo?
    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.

    Jonty stop shooting our deer. If you've got too many in Herefordshire I don't mind you driving them over the line, after all we don't have too many around here, but don't shoot them.

    The Welsh boys have been marauding in Herefordshire for too long it's about time you gave them a bit of their own medicine back.

    Well done mate but let's have a photo just to rub it in.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
