    8 pointer

    First Buck of the rut,right as I was about to give up after suffering for my sport with the 'Mother' of all bad backs,well worth the struggle though a rather weird 8 pointer that was chasing a Doe down a sprayed off field.They are a bit thin on the ground though at the moment,or are other people seeing plenty?

    Well done, nice buck.

    Not much action here yet but I did connect with a small 6 pointer last Sunday. Hoping this hot and humid weather will kick the rut off with gusto!

    here's a better pic of the head..................

    I butchered it today ready for market tomorrow and he has had an injury some time ago(well healed)in the 'Aitches' which left his pelvis lop sided although he hadn't shown anything untoward before the shot,and he did run on for maybe 30yds well enough.He also had a healed hole put through the fins of his lower neck most probably from a tussle earlier in his life,it seems like this lad has been about a bit,but I hadn't seen him on the ground previously.

    came up the A68 7:30 this morning, saw a couple of bucks around the field edges,,not that I was looking away from the road!!!LOL... a 6 pointer near Fala and a spiker outside Lauder..both standing right under the treeline and one was about to hop back into the comfort of the canopy.

    then all hell broke loose weather wise! I'm not sure there'll be much going on, but apparently saturday morning is supposed to be dry, so I will be out all morning and be bringing plenty of energy, 20 rounds of ammo, an a few roe calls.....game dealers get ready!!!
