After several encounters with these mini rockets in the woods and always being too slow to get onto them I finally managed to get my first muntjac this afternoon thanks to EMcC's eagle eyes.
Eddy spotted her moving through the wood and by the time I had back tracked to where he was standing and got the rifle onto the sticks she was thinking she was safe with her rear end behind a tree and stood obligingly at the bottom of the slope slightly quartering on. I managed to slip a .30-06 150gr just above the near shoulder, through the top of the heart and out just behind the far shoulder and she dropped on the spot.
Well chuffed, thanks Eddy!
Any tips for butchering these? Is it better to leave the haunches on the bone as they are small? Or just treat the same as roe?
