    Spent XX Looking At A XXXX Thinking It Was A Deer

    Was out the other night in a high seat and after glassing the area, finally spotted something that I was convinced was the corner of a Fallows Palmation behind a bush!

    I must of spent at least 30 minutes looking at this thing, each time being convinced than it had moved...

    As the night drew to an end and still certain that it was a fallow sitting down. I stalked in on the "Palmation" only to find it was a tree tube that had been damaged and opened out! What a plonker...

    What humorous objects have you stalked thinking it was a deer???

    I have stalked 'log deer' 'stump deer' and 'clump of bracken deer' over the years. My pal once stalked a set of rolls that he thought were Fallow at last light.
    Good to laugh at ourselves occasionally.

    Must be using Zeiss. Anything else and he wouldn't have even spotted it

    I am always amazed how bracken at last light turn into deer and how at first light deer turn into bracken.

    I have been caught out many a time thankfully though I have never shot at an inanimate object thinking it was a deer ( or anything else which I was intending to shoot ).

    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

    brother shot a "thistle rabbit" once.....does that count?

    stalked a "rabbit" with night vision monocular only to find it was a lucozade bottle with a very reflective "eye"
