Thread: Bucks fever kicks in (on film)

    Bucks fever kicks in (on film)

    Ah its roe buck time again and the crops are up meaning neck shots off the sticks.
    So my average will drop now.
    This is shown by kind permission of the client who was worried the does would discover us.
    After looking down his scope at the deer making there way towards us it got to much and the fever kicked in.
    You will see the doe who is nearer jump and he thought they were much closer from the view in the scope.
    the buck was actually about 85m's and his neck was just creased cutting hair.
    it was finally shot at about 50m's.
    the gun is an UN-moderated .308.
    The shots were ALL safe I assure you so NO comments on that please.

    Sorry guys, the only good thing about the video in my book is it shows how it should not be done. And people wonder why the FEOs are insisting on mentoring. I know it is an 'if' but what if the 1st or 2nd shot nicked the neck and the buck instead of being stupid and stopping for a 3rd time, ran off injured????

    And what makes you think it wasn't nicked??
    read the OP.
    If only everyone who hunts could be as cool under those circustances as you and me, EH F.Ter.


    I have seen sternums clipped on perfect broadside animals off the bi pod, sadly everything isn't always like in the dsc1 classroom when your in the field under those circumstances.
    Deer get clipped even by marksmen who shoot everyday. Any amount of mentoring will not stop this happening occasionaly.
