Thread: A Successful Evening

    A Successful Evening

    I was out at one of my permissions this evening sat up in a high seat when this buck presented itself. It was a clean shot at around 100 yards and the beast is now in the chiller for a few days before being butchered. I intend to give the meat to the landowner as he is very generous and although not a shooter, is fascinated by the idea of taking food from his own land. He came out to see the deer where it fell and was very pleased.

    If you look closely you can see the animal is half way to having its summer coat and a bit patchy!

    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.....

    Thank you for the comments. He weighed in at 29.46 kg. A nice beast.

    That's a big Roe. Was it just head and feet off? Ours in the South Lakes average about half that.

    That was the weight of the entire animal, less a fair bit of blood. I weighed it as soon as I got home, prior to gralloching. It had bled a lot, but there was no meat damage. What amazes me is that its heart had been entirely destroyed by the bullet, and yet it ran 50 yards before collapsing and dying.
