Thread: Muntjac - they never stand still!

    Muntjac - they never stand still!

    Question for the Munty stalkers out there:

    Q: What do you do to stop the little buggers before taking the shot? I have tried squeaking etc...but with little luck so far.

    I realise you have to be quicker on the shot than say with a Roe, but getting that few seconds of them standing still is not easy with the Munty's I am stalking.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Follow them in the scope, then give a shout or whistle, or a bark, any sudden noise. Then... boom!

    Swing through, same as with any running target.

    If they know I am there, then I have never been able to stop them as they make their way off. If they are unaware of my presence and just busily going about their business, then a whistle, squeek etc should do the trick...... unless it doesn't . Thats why they are such an interesting little creature, they are so unpredictable. It's fun trying though.
