Thread: Like walking on cornflakes....

    Like walking on cornflakes....

    The recent hard frosts have been making some of my ground almost impossible to tread quietly with heavy frozen leaf fall making it sound like I’m walking on cornflakes!!

    So, change of tactics required, get in nice and early and let things settle before the sun comes up and see if I can pick off some more Does.

    So, up around 5am and set out into the chill, crept as best I could up through a long narrow wood to get to my desired area sounding like a bull in a china shop.

    I upset one Roe and sent it running / crashing through the wood and barking in the pitch black, but I stuck to the plan and carried on.

    Got in position and passed a few mins watching the rat race starting on the road below..and glad not to be part of it..



    Starting to look like another beautifully crisp morning…



    The old “Currant Bun” rising with a wee bit of heat behind ..



    Plan worked, slowly stalked into a likely area and bagged a brace
    Could have shot another just as I was gralloching the second beast but the clearfell I was on was absolutely treacherous under foot today, 2 was enough to shift..





    Cheers

    Nice one
    But
    I will be waiting till the sun comes up before starting out in this weather just as the roe seem to be doing saw laods of deer on my way home last weekend.(after 8-30am)

    That's what I was doing to start with rrd, last doe I took was at 10.30am when the Sun was well up and warming but the ground was a great deal softer and easier to move around on.

    This particular area is hard to get into at the best of times but with frozen leaves it is torture
    Enjoy your long lie before stalking lol
