    Oilmanjd Strikes it Rich

    Yesterday was supposed to be going down to the Scottish Borders with Oilmanjd for him to look at a bit of ground. Due to weather we put that one off but to avoid the disappointment of not getting out I asked him to another piece of ground further West where the weather was improving. We arrived there about 20.30 and I gave John directions to a high seat from which I have had a good few roe. I watched him wander off down a ride glassing every few steps and I hoped that the loadings for the .308 cartridges he had made final adjustments to the day before would bring success. I then headed off toward another high seat. Enroute I bumped a buck that ran into woods in the general direction of John's seat.
    Climbed into seat and on the second that I parked my ar5e, boom!! The distinct roar from a .308. Good I think till 5 minutes later the phone goes. "There's blood but no deer" Not so good news. These woods are thick and if a deer gets back in they can quickly disappear. Goes round with dog and in no time at all we have a very nice buck (19kg) with a malformed head. A well placed heart/lung shot but enough left to run that 25/30yds.
    OIlmanjd has the pictures which I hope he will put up. You can go back to the rigs a happy man.

    Ha ha ha, yes, very happy indeed. The beast is a cracker. I am amazed at the absolute minimal damage those Interlocks do, that's two Deer down with that loading and virtually no damage.
    I am glad Diesel was there, 25/30 yards away in that heavy rough would have been a hard slog to get the Deer if he wasn't there....he done really well in the trail and was right onto it as soon as he got that blood trail....good to give him a run out.

    Looking forward to visit to Borders now ......thanks for the trip on visiting that other piece of land.

    Here are the pics of the Deer and the malformed head.
