I went out on Friday morning, this was my 5th visit on my new ground. I had been there on Tuesday with Cadex who gave me a lot of good pointers and recommended areas I should try again. I arrived just before 6am and decided to stalk up to an area on the perifery of the wood which had shown signs of deer. I arrived at my chosen spot and settled down between two trees, which gave me a view down a couple of rides. After an hour or so there was no activity so I decided to stalk to a different location where we had seen a young buck, again I found a spot where I could overlook the area and waited, again after about an hour and seeing nothing I decided to move again. By this time the wind direction had changed and I decided to stalk back up to my original position. I moved up to the corner of the wood as I turned the corner to approach my orginal position, I seen a buck about 200 metres up the hill. The buck hadn't seen me so I crept into the edge of the wood at this point it was between the wood and the perimiter fence, which it decided to hop over. I thought that if I could get close enough I would wait on it coming back across the fence and possibly get a chance of a shot. I stalked up the edge of the wood stopping every time it lifted it's head and after what seemed like half an hour I ranged it and it was still 150 metres away. I wouldn't take a shot at this range as being a novice I would say that I was quite comfortable at about 100 metres with the bipod and about 80 max with sticks and I thought that this shot required sticks, so I had to make another 70 metres,eventually I managed to get there and was beginning to set up the sticks when the buck decided to jump back over the fence and disappear into the wood. I waited for about 30 minutes but it never reappeared. I'm sure it didn't see me but I couldn't believe how hard my heart was pounding,they say the thrill is in the chase and not the kill, well I thoroughly enjoyed the chase and looking forward to the next one, be nice to get a bit of venison as well though.
