Did you call that buck in John?
He fairly came steaming through that gate.
This was a buck which I shot recently. . I had seen him a few times chasing a youngster about but he never presented a shot. . Incidentally I managed to shoot the youngster one day and this older boy a couple of days later. He was so engrossed in fraying the living daylights out of a wee willow tree I think I could have walked up to him and threw a lasso around his neck.
Your right though saps rising.
Imagine when the ruts in full swing, he would have charged like a rhino!
Fantastic - that was an exciting, close-range encounter. Bold buck wasn't he!
