  1. Unusual Sika

    Managed to get out for an afternoon and morning to catch up with a couple of Sika. Headed towards a high seat at the Sothern side of a woodland block for the northerly wind we're experiencing. Picked up the quad and headed off to find my usual route blocked by a large tree across a hard track...
  2. Just In Time For The Sika Rut PART 2

    Back out tomorrow afternoon for a couple of sessions. Looks like the weather is cooling off a bit, which is good, maybe a bit more autumnal. Expecting the stags to be going full on and although I should take a couple of the bigger 6 pointers that will not get any better, it's not so easy to...
  3. Just in time for the Sika rut

    Been flat out this year, new additions to the family and a property purchase that involves a full renovation. Managed to get a few days on the bucks, did get 8, no big ones, with maybe a couple more to come before the end of the season. Anyhow, after only undertaking nocturnal activities with...
  4. High Seat Views

    Not sure if this post has already been done, I've seen kitchen and office views but high seat views can also look inviting and sometimes bleak. Inherited a couple of high seats (well belong to the land owners of a lease), and some of them needed moving. The first 2 faced the only track (hard)...
  5. Right, then wrong decisions then a first

    Well after a complete season without any stalking due to lockdowns and new additions to the family, I finally had good reason to make some time, albeit 2 afternoons a few days apart. One of the lease farmers was getting a bit uneasy about the amount of Sika that was dining on some new leys so...
  6. Pressure Stalk

    Pressure stalking in the morning. Have let the steaks run low and the Mrs wants Sika steak...... iron level too low apparently :rolleyes: Did try for a Sika calf last weekend but when I arrived, the fog was so thick, it was a write off for the first couple of hours. Not that I didn't see any...
  7. RWS Evo Green

    Anyone know if you can just buy the bullets? 6.5 cal?
  8. Stalking in the good ol' days

    Watched the first hour this evening........ stalking with James Douglas When men were men :-| Teaches shot placement for running roe :eek: Bipods?........Rubbish! Sticks?.....Who needs sticks? Quad?.....What??? Tripod?....Huh! Double....Hah! Single?....Tosh! Who would want to be a cameraman...
  9. Police Interceptors

    Pathetic..... o_O Not the interceptors but what happens to those who are caught. Just watching an episode and an angry little man is caught in a stolen car with both class A and class B drugs along with an extendable baton. He gets a £170 fine and wow.... the car is returned to the owner...
  10. Rut Full On

    Sika rut full on down here in Dorset. Been in amongst some noisy action with some aggressive stags over the last week and especially this morning. Happy adding to the video footage for the moment although I’ll have to take a few out over the next couple of days. Already have a couple of...
  11. Which Stag

    Have a number of stags at the moment, some promising younger stags that will not be shot, a few not so good that I would take as long as I do not have to give away the carcass. Also have a couple in one area that are holding a good number of hinds and intend taking one of these. What do you...
  12. Bait stations

    Not legal everywhere
  13. Sika Stag Hunting Day 1

    I thought that after summer and the Roe buck hunting, if I could, I’d put a day by day account of this autumn’s search for a good stag. So after watching various stags from the end of July, the .243 has been put away and the 6.5 Cr is the now go too rifle. A couple of weeks ago I started the...
  14. Photon blanking out with recoil?

    Lined up a fox last night......dead fox but the photon blanked out with the shot. Had it a few times in the last couple of years but this time it lost zero data, reticule and colour. I knew the figures and once it was running again I input but on the next shot it did exactly the same although...
  15. Most hated animal

    Top of my list is slugs, period, likely followed by sheep although you do meet the nice one. Found this bloody thing slithering down my back garden wall and had to go for the .270
  16. Back stop proof

    Downloaded a video of a small stag I shot early in the week, and on watching, it highlights what may and may not be considered a decent back stop. The 3 frames show one of the shooting position and 2 frames show the bullet hitting the field behind. Stag was around 175, calibre 6.5 with 130g...
  17. Honda Quad Equipment

    Been putting together a replacement for the Kawasaki quad I've used for many years and it happens to be a Honda. Looking to add some equipment that I've designed and will shortly have manufactured. It may be of interest to anyone who uses a quad during stalking activities and I wanted to get an...
  18. Nice dilemma

    Been fortunate to have good Sika and Roe leases down in Dorset for the last couple of years despite culling on the same areas for over 35 years. In the time before I had the permissions, I've taken some nice Sika trophies and have quite a few of them adorning the living room. I only really...
  19. Finally getting at some Bucks

    Eventually managed to start the season last week. Spent a few days getting my fridge up and running, a few outings to see what bucks are around and taking a client out for a morning. Having spent a few hours on top of the hill in the last few weeks whilst working on the cold room, there are a...
  20. SpaceX Starlink Satellites Tonight

    SpaceX Starlink satellites will be passing over again tonight. Had a good view last night without knowing what they were. 60 number, all tailing one another travelling West to East. Had to google it last night as my first thoughts were ICBM's on their way to China :eek: 9.58pm for 6...
