evening guys just thought id do a quick write up, yesterday morning saw me getting up to go have a look at my local stalking ground. after a quick drive round as it was just coming light to see what was about, any way after only seeing a few does looking as if they were about to drop there young i decided to go sit out on a hill side on a wood where iv seen some fresh fraying last week, as there was a strong cold wind and this wood was quite sheltered i figured i was in with a good chance of seeing a buck. after 40min on only seeing one doe i was just about to move off and have a stalk trough the wood when i spotted a buck walking down the fence line 110yds in front. the buck decided to stand browsing an ash tree and the only shot posible was a neck shot so after a lot of should i or should i wait for a better shot i decided to go for it. any way buck went down after a few min i headed over to the buck where i could instantly tell it was a good buck.
so after sorting the messy job out i caryed the buck back to the truck and headed off back to the larder. as ai could tell it had a good body weight to it i decided to put it on the scales and my guess was wright 20kg larder weight.
here he is with the other two bucks iv had this week.
so today i set to sorting the head out boiling and cleaning off, the head has a good weight ot it with thick cornets with a wet weight of 550g its looking like it could make a bronze depending how much it loses once dry so we will see in 90days time
