Hands up who ever has given Roe Deer access to the safety parts of best practice guides and DSC1 training manuals. They have obviously been reading them.
This is morning I was out trying to catch up with a couple of old does. I caught up them. Easy shot 20 yards or so, but with a road behind. Stay very quite - she trots away only to stp precisely in line with some houses. She moves again and offers me a clear shot with just fresh air behind. Didn't bother taking rifle off the shoulder. 5 mins later so the other one - yes just with open trees behind, but the couple of bucks she was with had good solid backdrops.
I must take a camera instead - lovely morning to be out, just a hint of spring and birds singing beautifully.
