Just got back from a long weekend stalking with clients, all of which are site members. The Roe season has been rather odd up to now, in as much that the bucks are only showing briefly during the early morning and evening and do not seem to be wandering out in the open quite so much.
However out of 4 clients from Friday to Sunday morning, 3 of them collected a buck with me. The above photo was taken with my camera phone so is not the best quality, but at the end of Saturday morning I ran into this big lad on my lease. Believe it or not it got within 15yds of both me and Chris (the client) before making its way to our right and dissapearing into the undergrowth. At least a Bronze, possibly silver and only a young animal. Potentially a gold buck in about 2 years I would hope and every much similar to the gold head I took with a client last season.
Here is the buck we took this morning on another area I have, good old beast but an uneven head, good body weight and clean of velvet and no sign of summer coat. This is the 8th buck I have taken with clients so far.
