After bloody nightmares with builders and ending up labouring to my brickie myself all week, I finally got out today for a look at the bucks.
Covered all the ground but bugger all was moving about in the drizzly pish that was passing for weather down the borders at 6am today.
Seen a couple, but they were tight in the gorse, and were also to be savoured another day when they colour up abit, then finally saw a nice little buck feeding at the edge of a plantation.
Went passed him around 1/4 mile or so and stalked back in towards him, and easy one really, and got lined up on him against a fence post. Sat watching for a few minutes, as I was going to shoot him through the fence, but was in no hurry so let him feed up the banking a bit to get him in the clear. Just as he did, a noise had him up and looking,! facing away from me I zapped him in the back of the neck, Fine shot.
Nice, but a bit scruffy, what with it being early yet.
