    I was lying back in a clear fell and facing into the wind. This lad was croaking down in a gully and I had no intention of going after him. After a few minutes he appears only 15 feet away+- looking left and right (for other bucks i imagine) and starts walking directly at me. He passed by me so close I could have reached out and touched him. He was oblivious to me, I was shaking as I thought he might attack if I startled him so I didn't budge and I let him pass. About twenty seconds or so after he passed I swiveled on my backside and shouldered the rifle and dropped him. I was bollxxd after the long drag back to the van.

    thank's, the farmer was going to put it on his scales for his livestock that he uses but guessed it was over 100kg before the grallock. the buck was fat, luck I got him before the rut. I used a 308 tikka t3 hunter with hornady 155g amax

    Talking about a fat but, take a look at the broad back on this Forest of Dean buck. Interestingly he has the poor palms fairly typical of FoD fallow.
