I had the pleasure of having Griffer here to stalk Red stags this week for two days
First day no shots fired , on the second day i had a funeral but returned to do the Pm stalk with Kriss
We set off the the highest hills on the estate ground where stags were being seen and spotted a big ten pointer right at the top of
the bowl with 6 or 7 hinds , my first words to the big fella were "we wont get near him " Kriss,s reply " lets give it a go"
Off we went following a small stream that runs top to bottom , 1400m to go , we were out of sight in some places and full view
in others but had cover of the water movement and noise , an hour and half later i said to Kriss do the last wee bit by yourself
and get set up when your happy and close enough.
Another 20 minutes Kriss was good to go , first shot perfect heart shot , the big old stag staggered about before falling over
It was starting to get dark by now so no pics taken at the time but the animal was gralloched and left on the hill overnight to
be collected nxt day
ONE OF THE BEST OUTINGS IVE EVER WITNESSED AND WITH A GREAT LAD
Hopefully big Kriss will add a few pics
