Well, that's my roe buck season off the ground. I'll probably take another 2 off this piece of ground and try for the same number off my other patch.
The shot was quite a straight forward 60m one off sticks, but I had to get myself round the edge of a huge field of beans to get in position. The approach was about 300m. Points in my favour were that the wind was in my face, he was stood in a position where most of my approach was concealed by a dog-leg in the hedge row he was stood against and he was quite near a pylon line so the constant ticking and clicking of the high voltage current helped to mask any small sounds I made on my way to the shot point. The shot took out the top of his heart and he took one big kicking leap (classic shot indication) and collapsed in a heap when he landed.
