had a lovely afternoon out friday ..
i have been going out a lot as soon as i finish work i am trying to make the most of the dry spell..
i made the half hour drive to one of my permissions as it holds a good amount of deer and i new there would be something mooching around.
i tend to sit on the hill for a few hours, from that point a can look over all the fields with the binos and see any movement..
as always there is a buck milling around the bottom near the spinny as i was watching him slowly nod off i noticed movement in the brambles. its was a nice big munty about 10 yards away from the roe but as soon as i seen it it disappeared back into cover..
now i thought it was going to be a waiting game but 10 minutes later she reappeared in the same spot it was a tight shot and over 200 yards but the opportunity was there so i took aim and down she went...
she was a good size and carrying so its probably for the best very pleased with her she is now sorted and going to make some lovely meals
i do like them muntys they are a brilliant animal funny to watch and excellent to shoot i think they make the perfect manageable deer to stalk carry and butcher..
many thanks andy
