    Culled a good one today

    Received a text from one of my land owners yesterday complaining about 9 roe in his wheat field. I went out this morning before my work and managed to bag 3 of them, one of them being this one!!

    Thats a good mornings work, and taking the injured one is always a bonus,
    Did you spot the injury before you shot it ????

    Hi Paul, hope all is well. I shot the first yearling doe and on the report of the shot this yearling stood up in some longer undergrowth about 40 yards from the fields edge. I put the scope on it, cranked up to 20, and could see the leg hanging as it walked away from me, it was not able to walk away very quickly which was fine because if gave me the chance to plug it in the back of the head before it reached the wood belonging to someone else. Not the 6.5 by the way!!! (22/250). That yearling in now in a hole, very poor condition. I have shot roe carrying similar injuries that have been in decent condition.

    Sinbad, they only started to show about 2 weeks ago. Shot another yearling 3 weeks ago full of liver fluke (never had that up here on my farms), and a mature doe shot elsewhere with no signs of young inside. We will soon see how it is going to pan out when the young drop, singles, twin does etc.
