Picked up a new rifle this week so after a quick zero session I was looking forward to taking a buck with it.A 6x47 Lapua stiller action built for me by Dane and Co. 1st loads and not much effort produced this grouping. No excuses now!!
Visited a small orchard this morning and hadnt made the seat when I spotted a roe buck couched up 50 yards away against a tree. Rifle on the sticks i took a neck shot and all over within 5 minutes of leaving the car. Walked around a bit after and spied another buck with his head in the apple tress. A much bigger animal. I put the crosshairs on his chest but then realised he had a doe in tow so I left him for another day. Dont think the rut is far away!
