to update you from earlier post of First Sika, sorry guys no photos.
I had a great time up on syndicate in scotland, spent the first two mornings going through the forest looking for wallows, scrapes and thrashing signs, i found a scrape and got a lots of pine needles all over my body. i used the sceery caller ocasionaly where i felt i hadnt made to much noise and where i thought i might get a shot.
On the evenings i sat quietly in the high seats, i never heard any sika whistles and only used mine twice just before dark. I noticed larger turds around one area but wasnt sure if they were red or sika.( i will try to upload a pic shortly if the battery on this lap top dosnt die first)
i came home with a roe buck after a 25minute stalk to get around him, and with a feeling that i had got a better feel of what is inside that particular forest rather than just walking around it . All your advice was used and will be used again next time.
