Thread: Another fine 6 pointer with Wallace Grant.

  1. #1

    Another fine 6 pointer with Wallace Grant.

    After a wee bit breeze kept him on his oil rig a bit longer than expected, Wallace got home yesterday and managed to get to mine for a bit of Stalking this morning. He arrived with Magner, his trusty guide dog, about 6am and we set off to have our usual look around. Very little to be seen in the fields but eventually we spotted a Buck in some woodland. It turns out that this one was an old friend. He'ld been stalked on countless occasions and last year he was particularly good at tearing up half the countryside !
    Anyway after a spectacular and difficult Stalk,in horrendous conditions, Wallace eventually managed to line up his Blaser .270 and send him to Bambi Heaven. This was his first shot (other than zeroing) through this rifle and hopefully augers well for the future. I can't remember what moderator he'ld on ( perhaps he'll remind me ?) but for .270 it was very, very quiet.
    With a very strong, thick neck with a bit of scarring and blood ( The Roe I mean, not Wallace ) he looked like he was still rutting. A bit late for that you'ld think.

    As an aside we also saw a Doe with very young twins this morning, almost like they had just lost their spots. So I suppose there will be a bit of late rutting required there.


    PS -- here's my ad in case anyone hasn't seen it yet - -

    Well Done!!
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Many thanks again john, have been lucky to take a few with you this year. Hi wt was 38lbs prior to going in the chiller for your cull recordS. I need to have a look at his teeth to age him as we were thinking maybe 4 years old but looking at his head again i feel he is quite old, sloping coronets, short face, grey hair around muzzle/eyes and the hair on his forehead is thick and curly.

    Alan hopefully i will get to take out a stag or two in morn with it

    ATB wallace Ps the mod is a riflecraft Genie ii light and very quiet.

    I Davie he was there, i do not leave him at home very often plus he loves being out. He will get plenty of stalking shortly 3 weeks at the stags on open the open hill with guests. He found 3 last season that had ran out of site on steep ground and dropped in deep heather. You will meet him one day.
