    Success For gr1ffer!!

    Attachment 11801

    Back in September I put a post up saying that Kris (gr1ffer) had braved the back-end of the hurricane to try for a sika stag before going on a 6 month tour of Afghanistan. We were beaten by the weather then although we still saw a few deer.

    Well, I invited him back to have a go at the hinds when on R&R before heading back for a final 3 months, and although things have been incredibly quiet lately, so much so that I intended leaving further visits for a couple of weeks, he managed this small calf. It was a good beast to get as it appeared in a planting on its own and its body condition and lack of fat would suggest not the best nourished and no hind with it.

    I knew it was his first sika, but then Kris told me that it meant he had now shot all 6 British species of deer as well.

    I hope you enjoyed the trip Kris and I wont say any more and steal your thunder...

    All the best to you and the boys when you head back over.

    Well done to you both.

    Stay Safe Kris

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
