Thread: 1st day of Norwegian roe buck season

  1. #1

    1st day of Norwegian roe buck season

    It was the first day of the Norwegian roe buck season today, I arrived early at my hunting terrain around 3am and waited for the sun to come up, the light was good enough to shoot from 4:30am.

    After seeing and hearing nothing I broke out the buttolo at 06:30 and 15 mins later a little buck showed up about 50 meters away in the thick forest vegetation. I had to wait till he was about 15 meters in front of me in a nice little clearing before he presented a good enough shot.







    Not quite a medal head but very good eating

    Leon he was taken outside a town called Ski approx 30 mins south east of Oslo, I'm a member of their hunting team.

    Jagare, yes I was worried with the tough winter that there would be very few around, but I have seen lots of scrapes and tracks whilst I have been out scouting the last few weekends, they're tough little things.

    Good luck for the new season Jagare.

    Hi Johner,

    Really excellent result - your Roe stalking is much more testing than what we have here in the SW.

    I get over to Saetre to hunt, you have some excellent ground in that area.

    Thanks Ian,

    It really does make it more challenging when you can only hunt forestry, but then it's more rewarding when you get something. I put a lot of time in and covered a lot of km's scouting all the terrain looking for signs and I was lucky to get a result on the 1st day.

    Let me know next time your over in Norway and we can go for a beer.

    Regards
    Jonathan
