    Great morning stalk with a sour ending( but good result)

    Gents

    Went out, this morning, I was sent for Christmas dinner gathering, great morning to be out, good conditions, I was really hopeful, to come back home, with Christmas dinner sorted.
    There was 2 of us, we went in a woodland, that it's split by an A road, so one to the left, the other to the right.
    after 3 hours of mix stalking and high seat, I didn't manage to find anything, so decided to go back to the cars and wait for the other hunting companion to come back. As I was changing jacket, I notice in the woodland, some movement, got my rifle and binos and started to investigate, it was a munty doe, quite young, but perfect for my requirements, about 60 yards out and boom, fell to the shot, in the atlas joint, at this point I was really happy, walked back to the car, to tool up, my companion also joined me, informed him about the event and off we went to prepare the carcass, quick inspection of the animal... Seemed fine, so gambrel out and suitable tree to hand fit the grallock.
    From here on went all down hill for my planned Christmas dinner, I was mortified by the findings, but happy to put the animal out of is misery end.

    Illness= TB

    Yep that is bad news, unusual for a munty though?

    Hi Richard,
    My hunting companion, he is in charge of the lease, he was going to inform the relative authorities, more than one. In this particular woodland, the badgers, have been injected with TB vaccine.....I don't think it worked or missed some.
    As soon as I know some news, I will let you now.

    Hi Shakey,

    That's the reason, I wanted to post these photos, so that people, like yourself, that never have the experience, can get a visual, of what it could look like..... yes its definitely TB, a really bad case 2, the lungs are saturated, the strange thing, the munty was behaving normal, no give away of illness, the condition was good too.

    Thanks, it should be interesting to see if they deal with your munty in the same way they did with my red hind.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the info, does tb crop up all over the country? I thought it was just north and west.

    Good post mate, its good to see it in field conditions instead of in a book etc,
    It's looks riddled with it, if it is tb its spread further than the lymnphnodes

    Were the sacks hard??
    Please keep us ( novices)posted,

    Very informative post
