Thread: Fences - they do stop bullets.

    Fences - they do stop bullets.

    I was out this morning and the only thing between me, and the 7 Red hinds was this sodding fence. Not a difficult thing to shoot across but..........

    ..... it might as well have been the Great Wall of China, it's the boundary between where I can shoot and where I can't. I was sat there for about 20 minutes waiting for one of them to leap over, but no, they chose to point their arses in my direction before they moved off in the general way they came. They may as well have stuck two hooves up at me

    But on a positive note, I was out last evening somewhere else and had a Roe Buck come right up to see what I was (the ebay flektarn seems to work at close range) - and he's in season from tomorrow. Hooray!

    A pat on the back is often just a recce for the knife.

    I've still only ever managed one stalk (cheers Steve) and this was exactly the problem we had. Still not managed to grass a deer.

    The buck probably couldn't work out what could possibly smell like that!!

    Don't worry mate. Took me a good while to get my first out on my own and i'm going through a barren patch at the moment - but thats the sport, if you got one everytime there'd be no challenge - stick with it and good luck

    I suppose the fox that came round behind me, and got the shock of it's life too, also had a bad smell in it's nose. I'll get the video over to you, it's a combination of small pocket camera and iphone footage and was taken in the top of the field where you shot that roe deer. There's two does and a buck hanging around together and there is another buck a bit further over in the other wood.

    Had the same seemingly all summer last year. I grassed three bucks within twenty four hours at the end of last May. I went out numerous times thereafter and the only buck I saw was on the other side of the boundary, I saw him twice. He came up to the gate to investigate a fox and then turned back. He grazed ten yards out into the forbidden field but didn't cross the line. Everytime I thought he was coming my way he turned and walked away. Bloody frustrating!
    Best Regards,
    Adrian.
