Thread: Maori's first Roe

    Smile Maori's first Roe

    We went out yesterday for Maori's first proper Stalk. At 6 months old I thought it was time for him to get a little training. It was a nice dry day, very cold and very quiet in the wood. He managed to stay at heel for the most part and after half an our we managed to put up a nice Doe. She stopped for a look back about 80 yards away which was her downfall. The .223 did the job fine and Maori didn't seem the least bit bothered with the shot. I put him on the search right away, he went off like a rocket and soon found her in the thick heather ( amidst a lot of growling !).
    Rewarded with a kidney, which was quickly wolfed down, it looks like I now have a new Deer Dog.

    Poor "Bolt" will now be in retirement.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
