    Berkshire Buck

    Just a brief note to offer congratulations to karlbird from the site for shooting his first Berkshire roebuck this evening.

    After shooting a tight group on the target we then stalked through some woodland to spend 15 minutes watching a roe doe grazing its way along the headland between the wood and a field of wheat. Moving to a gap between the trees we were surprised by a nice four-point roebuck that appeared when we were least expecting it. Having initially seen the buck Karl then executed a perfect lung shot after the buck had cautiously approached us and then injudiciously turned broadside on forty yards away.

    A short dash by the buck gave us the opportunity to follow up with Fallow (my labrador) on the blood trail until, turning the corner into a field we found the buck lying stone dead. Karl then carefully gralloched the buck and we took it back to the larder.

    All in all a very pleasant way to spend an early summer evening.

    Well done Karl
    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Thank you very much - an absolute pleasure! A great evening, in lovely countryside and with good company, and not only my first Berkshire Buck, my first Buck ever. Thank you for your patience and for teaching me so much, the learning curve is steep but with people like your good self to guide us it is truly a pleasure to learn.

    As for 'carefully gralloched' I think you were being polite, its fine to say it took me an age - but I was learning!

    Again, thank you and I hope to see you again soon.

    Well done Karl.
    You were certainly in good hands last night.

    I love my trip down south stalking with Dom. Brilliant countryside and you always see deer.

    Well done guys

    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.
