Thread: Wrong place unfortunately

    Wrong place unfortunately

    Unfortunately for this chap he had got in amongst the estate owners ornamental sheep and lambs, and had been in there four days or more.

    I got the call friday afternoon to remove him a.s.a.p, and as I happened to be home I geared up and went over.

    I did not know if I would have to shoot him or try and get him out by other means.

    It took me a while to find him, bump I should say as he was tucked in under a thorn hedge in the shade, it was 18c on Friday.

    As soon as I bumped him he was up and away but limping quite badly on his right side although I could not see any visible injury.
    He was up and away in the wrong direction for me, as he was headed toward the public road end of the estate.
    I stalked him as best I could with little and no cover at times except the fence line which was not great. This went on for an hour or so and I could see through the bino's that he was getting more stressed out and panting quite hard.
    I could have shot him half a dozen times but he just kept that road behind him so no way a safe shot. I settled down to watch him for a while and to see if he would settle down and allow me to get in closer(400m, too far) and away from the sheep but he just would not settle.
    I decided to go through the fence and join him and the sheep and wondering if I looked anything like a sheep in cammo and doubled up like someone with a very bad back.

    Anyway, as you can see he did give me the broadside shot at 200m so it ended well for me but not for him.
    Why the alladins slippers I dont know. He had no other visible injuries and he had all his tackle and was on a good estate with an abundance of food, must have been living well as he was 35lb clean in the larder.
    There are parts of the 20 acre sheep fields that are only post, rail and wire which he could have cleared with no trouble but he would not jump over even when he was stressed because I was there.

    If the alladins slippers had been on his rear cleaves I could understand why he would not jump the fence.............

    Who knows

    6P, you're damn right! It was a hell of a throw with that knife at 200m

    Well done Max!

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    I once shot a doe with feet like these on a farm with arable, lots of sheep and cattle. The liver was very badly fluked. How was the liver in this deer?

    Regards JCS
