So I get the call today from a local landowner saying that he's been seeing two bucks on his ground and he's about to put cattle on all of it and they won't be seen until the beasts come off in late October . So off I went for a cracking couple of stalks . Caught up with one six pointer after about an hours stalk on my belly in a hay meadow . Young buck and although he's a six pointer ( just) he was a very poor buck and in bad condition .
The second I saw as I walked back to the land rover , I upped him but he ran along a valley and I moved to take a neck shot . Couldn't believe it ! 7 pointer !
.243 did good !
Also saw a lot of does .
all in a fantastic day . And the best head of this ground yet !
Please before anyone posts saying I shouldn't take them both before the rut . This is the last time I will see these until early November when they will obviously be out of season . This piece of land is surrounded by over 4000 acres which the people who lamp with me will vouch - holds some fantastic heads .
