  1. #1

    lowland version of macnab

    I was sat with a friend watching five roe enjoying the evening sun we were sat by a stream quiately chatting the roe were on the opposite side 300yds away no crossing near
    when they laid down so no chance of them coming to us a few woodies flew off rape nearby a trout rose in the stream.priceless he said.Then asked how much would people pay for the chance to shoot a buck,a couple of woodies,catch a wild trout.all on the same property.possibly within a couple of hunderd yards anyone any thoughts.

    A friend got a Macnab a couple of months ago.
    One badger, one fox and a grey squirrel all on the same morning.

    Weapon used was his bosses delivery wagon !

    Odds rather like winning the lottery.

    I've known a few that have done the Red, Roe, and Muntjac in a day.

    In Buchan's book, the challenge issued was to poach a stag or a salmon from each of three estates and deliver them to the respective landowners without detection. The landowners were forewarned and took steps to frustrate "John Macnab's" covert activities.

    My undertanding of the currently accepted tally is a stag, a salmon on the fly and a left and right brace of grouse, all to be taken between dawn and dusk on the same day. I'm not aware of anybody having figured out when or how this alternative version arose, but it does now appear to be accepted as the genuine article.

    Has anybody managed a Royal Macnab?

    seem to have missed my point how much of a privalidge is it to be out there so close to nature.Yes could sell the oppertunity but would it devalue it
    May sell it for charity to someone who would appeachiate it.

    Good idea roedeerred. I'm sure it would do well as a lot in the BDS sporting auction.
