Thread: Good morning on the Roe

  1. #1

    Good morning on the Roe

    Just got back from West Sussex after a mornings stalk with a new friend off the forum. The rut is in full swing.

    Watched a Bronze if not Silver buck mount a doe at least 6 times, just couldnt get the safe shot. Had another unsuccesful stalk on another reasonable buck, but the two doe's with him screwed it up for us.

    However we managed to get a nice old 5 point buck right at the end of the morning. Good heart shot at 80 or so yards, ran down the field of oats and disapeared. Couldnt find the buck to begin with, and then my Bavarian picked up the trail and found it buried under a large clump of laid oats. We would have been there for a while trying to find it if is wasnt for the dog.

    Total deer seen 10 doe's 3 bucks. Very good morning, lets hope the bad news on the foot and mouth does not affect the stalking, and it is contained. Fingers and legs crossed guys!

    An excellent stalk Malcolm!
    Firstly Malcolm may I thank you for a truely excellent stalk. A beautiful day, a fantastic guide and a brillant Bavarian! not to mention a superb breakfast!
    I like many fellow stalkers have been had by 'so called' professional outfits and paid dearly for the privilage of looking at an empty field and paying well for the privillage.
    Since joining this site I have been able to enjoy 2 of 3 invites from 'real' professional stalkers. Wayne Davies and Malcolm, thank you both for providing the opportunities and to enjoy your company.
    With Wayne I was unlucky and with Malcolm I got a very nice old campaigner.
    My message to new stalkers is **** the leaches that are destroying this sport and find yourself a true stalker that is prepared to share his experience with you! There are some excellent stalkers on this site, please help your fellow comrades. We all know how it feels to be 'All fired up and no place to go'!
    Thank you also Rob Mac for this site. 'It Rocks'!
    The Bradleys', Bagpussy's and Douglas's of this site can in the Gaelic, 'Away and shi-ite'!

    I raise a glass to all of you, Jaeger, hunter, stalker and wish you all good hunting and a clean kill.

    Regards Beowulf (formerly Carl Gustaf)

    Barbour - Shirt,
    Hoggs - Moleskin trousers,

    Cheers Nutty, I hope to repeat this later in the year for Sika in Scotland for two members off the site.

    I always get a kick out of the adrenalin rush that another person gets when you finally get a result for them.

    Happy days

    I know the feeling bud! I was creasing myself when the staggie showed up my mate got so excited but it was over the fence so a proper no no!!

    Do you have many sika on your ground?

    I have two main areas for Sika one in the highlands of Scotland the other in Dorset, the Scottish area is about 8000 acres and I own the entire sporting rights, the Dorset area I share and is about 600 acres.

    Both areas have good populations of Sika, and last season in Scotland we took 7 Stags in 8 days stalking, with one red letter evening when we took 3 stags.

    Beowulf's Stalk

    Is it just me or do other visitors to this site get the impression that Beowulf enjoyed himself at the weekend?

    Great to hear it was such a success.

    Cheers,

    Ha! enjoyed myself! It was brilliant!! Malcolm is an excellent stalker, who takes great pride in providing very good stalking opportunities for his guests.
    It was the first time that I got to see a great looking Silver medal Roebuck in the rut, serving his two Does with great 'alacrity'!

    Malcolm's Bavarian was also very good at his job, so guess what I want for Christmas?

    As you can see from my posts saturday on my return, I was very happy and rather drunk and full of mischief!

    And I've got Scotland to look forward too!
