i had a lovely few hours yesterday evening .. i arrived at the farm for about 6 with hmr in hand i was hoping to take a few bunnies as i have been asked for a couple for the pot by a few friends
the farm is mostly grazing so no crops in the way . i went for a mooch first, that was quite productive taking a jackdaw two squirrels and a lovely black rabbit
then i got into a good position on the far bank and spent the remaining time there .
the outcome was good for a few hours work, very pleased with some long distance shots

i also got onto a stunning buck in the week i had came up to drop half a carcass of to the farmer and he said he had seen a lot on this side of the farm and to talk a walk around see what i could come across..
i only walked into the first field and i was met with four roe one buck and three doe's they seen me straight away and was very twitchy i froze and gave them 5 minutes to settle.. this field is very open and a road at the top so it was going to be a long shot or nothing i felt confident and got the gun up on the quads took aim and he was down..
once again a stunning animal they do seam to be very gifted in the rack department this year.. i put it down to a very mild winter altho we have had a very wet start to the year i think they have done a great job..
many thanks andy
