I was out with a few of the usual suspects stalking yesterday & did manage to take a deer at about 8am with the new rifle which I was very pleased with.
After a trip to the larder & then up to the estate range we had the calling of late morning coffee & the Cromwell Arms!
Then after a nice special of the day & no alchol I was back up at the top beat of the estate up a seat in the late afternoon sun.
I dropped off & awoke to find a group of Fallow Does out about 120m over the field in the worst possible position thay could be due to the road proximity, being unable to take a shot they soon had me scoped & did the off in a flash-had I not been asleep I would have seen them emerge from the woods & probably taken one or two from the group.
I did have to face the boys in a kangaroo court martial later back at the Mourtimers Arms!
