    My First Deer

    Wow Im off the mark!

    Today I started my deerstalking acccount with a fine pricket.I met my guide and thirty minutes in the deed was done. Having stumbled on a herd of forty plus deer we managed to find the only young buck among them. Waiting for around fifteen minutes they started to move in different directions, my buck among a small group of around ten. Around 100 yards out he presented me with a full broadside shot. Richard told me to ready myself. The deer was in my sights walking at a slow pace. He called an alarm, the pricket froze the trigger pulled and he dropped on the spot. "He's Dead" I was informed.
    Wow the longest few seconds of my life! Everything I learned finally put in to practice. My heart was thumping like a drum at what had just happened,my first deer!

    Regards to all Steve

    Well done Bordersman, as others have said, you'll remember this one for ever. I wish you many more successful stalks (most won't come in 15 minutes )
    Cheers, Pete.

    Welcome to the world of Deer stalking! You'll always remember your first kill. I really enjoy waiting for a shot to present itself. You never quite know if you will get the chance to pull the trigger or if they will wander off without presenting themselves in a suitable position. Either way it is great just to watch them.

    I spend many hours watching Deer through the scope of my HMR when I'm out after bunnies. To me a crosshair on the heart of a good specimen is as good as actually taking the shot sometimes. I have a lot of Deer on all my ground, but not all land owners want them shot.
