Thread: Got my Buck

  1. #1

    Got my Buck

    Well finally got my 1st one with the new Sako85 & I'm well chuffed...

    Rose this morning at 04:00 boiled the kettle and had a peep outside, expected wind and rain as forecast but instead had a humid overcast morning.. Right I thought big gulps of tea and oot.
    Managed as I normally do to stalk into a nice Doe, no signs of a buck with her so left her to her own and continued down to the infamous calling corner from the other night. Tried the Buttolo for a while with no joy at all, sat down had a smoke and thought of my next move

    Decided on a stalk up through the rough patch, took my time to be as quiet and slow moving as I could, this is not easy in here... & would you believe it I spooked what I thought was 2 Doe's & a kid just before I got to the end of the rough, Wait a minute I thought that second ones got antlers. I watched where they were heading and cut back down quietly to a clearing in the rough set up the sticks and waited. Sure enough the Doe skipped past and never even looked my way, a minute passed and I thought the Buck had already passed before the Doe. Just as I thought my chance had gone he appears, gave him a bark which stopped him perfectly in the middle of the clearing and neck shot him from around 60-70yards.

    One happy chappy...
