Well what a wonderful October day in Argyll. By dawn I was 1000ft up the hillside and stalking into a red spiker with larger stags roaring from all around. I spotted 2 large stags on the skyline of the opposite hill, all monarch of the glen stuff, boy can those stags pose! The spiker spooked and disappeared, the wind was working for me and being above I was surprised I was spotted. Any how I gave a roar to try and stop him but no joy.......... because coming around the corner ws this beauty! An 11 pointer. Sticks up and a nice broadside shot at 200m with a 6.5x55 140gr Federal and S&B 8x56.
It only took me 3 hours to drag him the mile to the nearest vehicle access, but isnt that part of it?
