    first buck of the seson

    me and my lad went out this evening to stalk some land on the boundry
    that we havent looked at since the bucks came in .
    I decided to stalk a piece one side of a road a block of about 100 acres
    and sent the boy the other side a piece roughly 80 acres .
    I gave instuctions to not be too fussy unless he spotted a real monster .
    he dropped me off and stalked down over the first field nothing showing
    this being all maize stubble with some nice regrouth of lush grass on the
    headland .
    on entering the second field I spotted a brown figure ranged at 150 yds
    it was a nice six pointer no not the one from up north
    problem was no safe backstop just a hedge so a definite no no
    as i watched him he sussed me stood in the gateway which i was not too
    concerned with as there was no way of gettingat him for a safer angle
    he then started to move right handed which if hed of gone parralel would
    of presented a shot off the sticks at around 150 ish which i would have been
    happy with but no such luck he decided to move off and through the far hedge
    i stalked on round and as i approached the fourth field a lovely much larger six
    pointer clean of velvet ran from behind some hazel up a slope and stopped slightly
    quatering at about 70 yds looking back at me as i slipped the rifle from my shoulder
    and upped the sticks he moved perfectly broadside i wasted no time in steading
    and squeezeing of a round from the 7mm he fell to the shot instantly
    I waited a couple of minutes then sent the gwp off she ran straight to the beast
    as i approached i could see it was a cracking six point buck
    the boy returned with the vechile as i was gralloching and said all hed seen on his side
    was a doe .
    we loaded up and set off for the ten minute drive home a lovely animal to start off
    the season with .
    will upload the picture as soon as i get it sussed .
    regards pete .
