Thread: Old Warrior

    Old Warrior

    This Buck has been popping up on my trail cam for quite a while, my simple plan was to pitch up around 100 yards from a used trail and wait...I use this method quite a lot as it works.
    After an hour and a half of standing still with the rifle on the sticks I had looked away for only a few seconds and there he was walking up the headland on his evening route....



    A quick bark to get his head up so I could put the round in his neck...a nice short drag back to the truck with enough light left to clean him out using my gambol off the side of my truck...
    Quite a lump with the sales hovering on 30lbs !!
    The left antler was broken off and the right one just out of velvet!!

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    A nice animal!

    They do give each other a hammering. Was there a lot of scarring on the face, neck and shoulders too, and were his tusks intact?

    Last week I was watching a lovely buck in his prime, and very obligingly he stood still, side-on, for several minutes. I have never seen such a thing... but then it was the middle of the night, and I was observing him with a thermal.

    In all honesty, even if it had been daylight I'd probably have left him, as he was such a handsome animal... and in velvet.

    Thank you, just checked the chillier with my Spaniel looking through the glass door...!
    Going to re-weigh the carcass just as a point of reference...

    Most kind, both tusks were there, not many scares but his ears looked like a the end of a weather beaten flag...

    Third buck off this ground as there are some established trails from an area I cant get on so I just wait a while and one will come to take over...I enjoy finding the pattern over the weeks as it is a good run for the dog checking the trail pictures...
