Thread: A twist in the stalk!!!!

  1. #1

    A twist in the stalk!!!!

    I went out this morn for a stalk. After 30mins I stood watching 2 fox cubs playing not more than 30 feet away totally oblivious to my presence. After a fruitless stalk I decided to return to the motor as the easterly was picking up changed direction and ended winding my next plan of attack. So back to the road and a brisk walk back but forever keeping a vigilant eye open for a stray buck. I had walk about 10mins when I heard a fawn bleeting!! I stood still, pin pointed where it was coming from and decided I would try and see it after about 10mins pondering yes or no!! 10 feet inside the wood lay a new born still wet and the ambilcal cord still attached a quick photo with the mobile and I left it be. After this rich sighting I thought well what a twist, Im out with a rifle to end life and this morn Ive seen new life and ended none!! But I felt a warm glow inside seeing the sights I did, absolutely fantastic I thought and didnt give a hoot that I was empty handed I new I was alive and not many people get the chance to witness what I had. Well to top the morn of I ended up shooting a yearling buck 20 yds from the jeep not far to drag it either bonus

    God its good to be alive and active in the country. 8)

    Cheers Stone that was my phone I used. The cubs well the neighbouring farmer isnt to pleasant shall i say, weve had greive over access etc, so the more foxes the better. Im sorry but when he chases after me the road spies on our every move from 2 fields away, his wife gets stroppy with me, he can have all the foxes he needs for next spring. BTW thats not a go at you, just letting folks no my reasoning why I didnt shoot them and we dont have any plans of putting feather to wood.

    Hi Nutty,
    Stone and I were out this morning on the Roebucks. The weather was evil and we saw no Bucks at all. However we did see three Does and the first had a new born fawn in tow. Fantastic! Its the first time I've seen a Roe fawn, it really made my day.
