Thread: Big Night Out

    Big Night Out

    Can't help myself but have to post last night's stalk for a roe buck with my son. Has to be the most enjoyable stalk I have ever had [wife thinks I am crazy]. Stuart my son has a young family and puts in a lot of hours at work, but when he asked to go out for a shot some night I was only too happy to ablige. One of the farm's I shoot on has a lot of sheep and all winter they were in fields along the side of a large mixed forestry block , the roe dont like sheep and none appeared on my side till the sheep were sold a month ago but I left the ground quiet. Last night after days of rain we spotted 5 roe 3 fields away, it took us a hour to "crawl" through the sodden fields on hand and nee's sometimes on our bellies in about an 1" of water till we got to a suitable shooting point only for the young buck we had seen dissapear behind a knowl in the field. Any further movement was impossible as there were does in the field as well in view of us, so we had to lie and wait. The young buck appeared about 1/2 an hour latter on top of the Knowl and he new something was not quite right and trotted back towards the forestry only to bring a big buck with him that had been hidden from view. Once off the Knowl they were both shootable and was exactly what Stuart did, both well placed shots and both dead. The older buck although I have never had a head measured has to be medal class and we will get him measured at The Scone Palace game fair this year. Proud or What " THATS MY BOY" soaked to the skin but happy as sand boys.

    Its great when your son comes out with you and bags his first beast. My youngest is definitely keen but with two youngsters of his own he can't get out very often. After a couple of blank outings he bagged two roe and I will never forget the look of exitement on his face or the amount of visible adrenalin flowing thru his body....he was shaking like a leaf after it!!
