Thread: A holiday in Poland to remember (pictures)

    A holiday in Poland to remember (pictures)

    I went for a holiday in Poland. As me and my wife are originally from Poland, we usually go there to visit our families.
    To cut the story short, I had really good time and was out stalking a few mornings and evenings.

    The first week was with my family and I shot over our club's 20000 acres of land.
    The very first morning was a success. I spotted a buck chasing a doe. I was surprised as it looked quite young with a poor head. I even thought it might be a yearling. It looked like there was no older buck in the area. I decided that he will not make a good father...

    I rested my rifle, and bang! 7x64 9g bullet. It dropped on the spot.

    The following morning I went to look for a big boar I saw the previous evening. It was to dark to shoot him. I found three yearlings instead. They were feeding on oats. When the first one tried to cross the ride and I spotted he's a male, bang! I went for a dog and saw a light lung blood on the ride. It managed to go 150-180 meters with a 7x64 bullet through the lungs. The blood was all over the oats.

    It weighted 48kg and even fitted Daewoo Matiz boot

    I also managed to go wildfowling (only one duck... ) and to shoot a few pigeons.

    The second week we spent with my wife's family. My father in law took me a few times stalking with him.
    I missed a big boar.... Sorry, no pictures

    We also saw a few red stags. The rut will soon begin. Male groups started to split and we even heard some stags roaring.

    One morning we started to stalk a group of 6 stags, but they were all young. Nothing interesting. But then we spotted HIM. He was feeding on the edge of a buckwheat field.

    It was quite a distance away, but I managed to hit him with my father's in law .30-06 Mannlicher. Once in a lifetime buck for me!

    Now, go back to Scotland.

    That's a great write up and some super pictures. You're right about that buck as well - not many chances like that come along in a lifetime

    I've been to Warsaw, Slovenia and the Czech Republic, but for work rather than pleasure, other than one fishing trip to Slovenia . Every time I travel I look at the country from a hunter's perspective. Eastern Europe always looks like fantastic hunting, and one of these days I'll get round to doing something about it.

    Looking forward to reading more of your stalking trips.
