Thread: Sunday's Muntie

    Sunday's Muntie

    I spent sunday stalking for CWD and whilst i had seen a few they were either on the hoof (me having nearly stepped on them in cover) or out in the middle of a flat field with a road as a backstop (not particularly safe). Nothing shootable so i decided to head back to the car for a quick bite and a drink at about 3pm and then headed out again to stalk into a highseat for the evening.

    I reached the corner of a grassed field and noticed a muntjack in the far corner, it hadn't seen me and the wind was in my favour so i ducked into cover had a quick check with the binos to seen he was a buck with one antler.

    All was fine, quiet but looking promising until the farmer decided to drive round the field on his quad checking the bird scarers and bangers. Oh well, he didn't know where i was so not to worry. I decided to double back on myself and re-trace my footsteps from where i saw the muntie buck. I passed the field into a wood block and stalking quietly along and then suddenly stopped to see a muntie streight in front of me, about 40m. Rifle on sticks and bang. Dropped on the spot with a few kicks. Well chuffed. As i approached i could see he was indeed the same muntie i saw in the field earlier, one antler and a knobby stumpy thing on the other side.

    Nice one, great little beasts I really look foward to starting on them every year with our guests and then I'm thoroughly p*****d off with them at the end, frustrating little buggers sometimes

    I love stalking them, they are my favourite deer to stalk at the moment, I've only shot two (seen a good few more), I find them really challenging. Good fun, and the drag out is never too bad
