Another good day here yesterday. Two nice young cull Bucks grassed by Paul M. The morning started of well, I spotted a Buck in the first quarter of an hour, Paul managed a text book stalk and we soon had him gralloched. Stalked for another 4 hours, it getting windier by the minute. Gave up, went home for the big breakfast and called it a day until evening.
Went out again about 7pm, the wind having come down from hurricane to gale force ! Blowing sand everywhere so I didn't give much for our chances. Spotted about 7 sheltered in some large trees, stalked in but they were too smart for us and were off like rockets.
Stalked another good clean Buck half an hour later but something spooked him from another direction and he slid away too.
(Good to have a few nice one's in the Bank though, so I didn't really mind )
Finally spotted a young Buck grazing near some woodland, managed to stalk in close even though the wind had died away and it was very quiet and crunchy underfoot. Paul managed another perfect shot to the engine room just before the light went.
Home for a wee dram to celebrate - - another grand day !
