Thread: Afternoon Pigeons....Early Evening Muntjac...

    Afternoon Pigeons....Early Evening Muntjac...

    A busy afternoon on rape stubble with a mate totalled 63 picking 56, far to hot for the dog also there were tractors running wheat behind the hedge we were shooting from!!
    Plenty of birds in the area with a good number heading to a pea field which was being cut about 3/4 of a mile behind us. Only 5 had food in their crops so we were on the right line.




    My third trip to a farm where I have seen Muntjac slots be never seen a deer, first trip produced a vixen, second was a Buck very close in the tree line calling for around 20 mins!
    This evening a doe came out browsing long the headland, where is the Buck!!!
    Ah there he is......!! With the doe being 20 yards in front she then disappears into the hedge, I have shot enough of these to know he will be on that invisible bit of string and follow this girl!!
    A quick bark stopped him long enough for the round too do its job...

    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.....

    Cheers, I was feeling the affects of the day as the original plan was to shoot a field of rape stubble quite early but when I got there they were muck spreading it. The farmers son who I was going to take forgot to text me!!
    That was plan (B) nothing like a deer to kick you back to full alert lol...

    It is surprising how quick the time goes, after the gralloch I went for a 20 min walk to let it cool a bit, then drive home to finish the prep before the chillier.

    Where there's muck...we make our own luck...Our harvesting is way behind yours down south and we have no hay or silage fields to cut, just barley ,wheat and rape.
    When I can get the jeep close that is my kind of gralloch. That's a great bit of kit you have for hanging and dressing,did you make it?

    I do work for some agricultural engineers who worked on a slaughter house for a lot of years so there are a few "bits" hanging around their workshop. I think that gambrel was off the line. I have 2, one in the truck and one set up in the shed.

    My deer hoist which fits my rear bumper has a small loop on the end of the cable which fits them a treat.

    Thank you, no Roe on my patch, no season on the pigeon, foxes, or crows. We have a General licence for shooting.
