I stuck to my plan despite being 50 minutes early as I had combined a late site meeting and would follow on to the farm….
With a light breeze working for me and my £2.00 boot sale camo coat blending in well with the hedge I had the rifle resting on my sticks and just waited…..
3 hares came trotting past no more than 15 yards out, so I was happy with my cover leaving just the deer to play ball…..
Out to my right the tell tale sight of Muntjac scurrying across the rape stubble, I waited and tried to gauge what they were up too as I have seen them head for a gap in the hedge half way down to the left of the picture before….
That seemed to be their plan…know for mine!
The doe was in front as you can see in the picture, so I gave a sharp bark and over she went, a quick readjust and the buck who’s was looking at his fallen mate had his fate sealed in my Kahles…
It was a different field to last nights buck and better ground for the second shot…
130 yards back to my stand point, down side is all the mozzies in Essex seem to turn up once the round has left the gun!!
