    Orchard Roe Buck

    Decided last night to visit a small orchard i shoot on. A quick call to the landowner and all cleared for a morning outing and was told he had seen 4 fallow laying up earlier ! Arrived this morning at 4 45, kit on and through the gate. I stalked slowly towards the far end where I have a doe box over looking a clearing of wild flowers. I scanned the orchard Nothing! I moved farther on and scanned a small opening at the top of a plantation of xmas trees. An unfamilar shape stood 50 yards in amongst the small trees! Sticks up and through the scope a set of roe antlers. I tracked down the neck and squeezed off a round from the 270 which dropped him instantly. I dont get to shoot many roe as they are just establishing themselves and have a seen a few good bucks on another permission a mile away so this was a good one to take. I shoot many fallow throughout the season but roebucks put a bigger smile on my face!!
