Golly, so many deer yesterday - none shot right enough but that was due to location(s). Three, a doe and twins, just at the golf course at Gleneagles and then, best sighting of the day a doe and triplets just at the roundabout in Stirling. I hope they either didn't try and get across the road or made it safely. Out at Kippen another doe and twins and then later in the day, when actually stalking, a doe and a fawn - but on the other side of the march. Bloody usual.
The night before I had sat at a new bit of ground just to reconnoitre the place. Very flat and lots of dog walkers which makes it challenging, but there is one field with a big dip in it which will give me my backstop. Quite a finite position however. Anyway, nothing, nothing, nothing, getting darker, so nearly home time, but just have a look at a different bit. Doe and twins. Good. Getting into the pickup I blethered to the old chap who owns the place for a minute and then just had a wee look to the side of the house. Whoop de doo - another four. Gaun yersel Jimmy! I'll wait till everyone gets back to work on Monday and then get started on them.
The highlight was the triplets. Great to see.
Happy new year lads.
