Thread: Whats down your garden?

  1. #1

    Whats down your garden?

    We I got a rush job dropped at my feet earlier in the week.
    Could I get down to Norfolk and cull some munjac who were trashing a garden.
    As it happened I could, I had had a cancellation and this little earner would just fit in nicely.
    So after a call I made arrangements for a mate to collect me in his camper van.
    We loaded a high seat and our stuff in and set off, sues head was still spinning as to the fact i was off again. LOL
    We arrived with just enough time to errect the high seat, having munties bark at us while we put it up.
    Next morning we were out just on light.
    A shot came from the seat immediatly, 1 down a doe.
    I had seen x3 deer but was unsure of backstops so never shot.
    We had breakfast and then aa mooch around to assess the job in good light.
    As it happened I could have shot all 3 including the big buck i had seen.
    That evening just on dark i managed a clear shot on a doe and she dropped clean.
    The night was very entertaining having munties bark all around the van which was parked on site.
    It made us very excited for morning.
    We were out again on first light and I shot a young buck within minutes.
    So I waited 15 minute to see if aanything esle would show. It never.
    So after gralloching the buck I hung him and went to sit on my stool I had left where the big buck resided.
    I crept in and sat down rifle up on sticks and pointing to his bob-hole, scope wound down to x3
    Was there about 25 minutes when he appeared at the hole looking straight at me through the brush only some 15m's off me.
    I dearnt move my eye fixed to the scopes eye piece.
    We stared at each other for ages, then I slis the saftey off as slowly and quietly as i could, he turned to go back into his den, as he did I fired a round into his rib cage, the .222 HP smashing into him and destroying his liver annd not exiting.
    He never even kicked.




    So we left and I dropped the big buck in at the taxidermists, fairly sure it will go gold.
    So a nice little job done a happy gardner, a happy mate, a happy me and a happy taxidermist.
    A good do all round and I got paid for it.....LOL
