Thread: Early Morning Roe Buck

    Early Morning Roe Buck

    Went out this morning to a farm I havent visited for a while to see if any fallow bucks were visiting as all Ive seen this week are does and fawns on various permissions. Saw a couple of small groups of fallow but nothing shootable. I cut through the hedge into a freshly planted field and saw a roe buck making his way back to the wood. I followed him for 100yards along the hedgerow as he rounded a bend. I crept forward until he came back into view and placed the rifle on the sticks. After a minute he lifted his head and turned broadside. The 270 broke the morning silence and he ran 30 yards and fell. I was pleased to see he had a nice head on him and 1 happy farmer who has a zero tolerance policy for deer.

    Nice head.
    Went onto one of my farms this morning, only small.
    Had a bead on Munty Buck at 07.00 when a dog appeared, closely followed by its owner way off nearest byway.
    Morning silence broken by **** with large voice shouting into the wood spooking any possible beast.
    Morning done
