I just wondered how many of you have taken your better halves on a stalk ?
Mine has been out a number of times and really enjoyed it. In the early days it was a bit like giving your better half a driving lesson (best avoided for domestic harmony). However like a learner driver they always get better. Recently she has usually taken her long lens camera along, tonight however she was passed the Mauser and grassed her first deer, a fallow doe follower shot from a high seat.
The young doe had wondered into a young plantation from a mature wood and spent several minutes in the crosshairs before being taken perfectly through the engine room.
A great result all round because tonight I have just enjoyed a superb liver dinner from it and a nice bottle of red to wash it down.
Out again in the morning, but tomorrow it's with a son hoping to repeat this evenings success !
