With the buck season almost over for another year how did everyone get on?
Due to working away from home amongst other things, I had a pretty quiet season.
I'm usually out twice or three times a week during the summer but alas not this year.
For the times I did manage out my success rate was decent with a few nice wee bucks taken.
I had four six pointers, nothing special but decent representative heads, the remainder being mostly cull bucks and spikers.
I had a few most enjoyable stalks, with one lasting almost an hour of 'cat and mouse' over seriously undulating ground, with the wee buck appearing briefly; feeding, and then disappearing into another gully.
I missed the vast majority of the rut but saw some chasing towards the end.
I watched an old boy chase a yearling at full pelt, such was the youngsters panic he ran straight into a stock fence and took a bit of a beating. . He seemed to be none the worse of it though.
I had what will probably be my last stalk on the bucks for the season tonight, saw a few deer but no shot taken. . . My rifle is off to have some barrel work done now and a new moderator fitted so that's that until the does come into season.
Roll on the frosty mornings
