    Roe buck this morning in Northumberland seven pointer

    Evening guys and gals I am fairly new to stalking about 3 years however have learnt a lot from some good friend and the experience I was out early this morning and got a beautiful roe buck 7 pointer been trying to get him for about 2 years eventually this morning at 6 am walked down the farm spotted a deer in the field the other side of the reveen so got tucked in the hedge roe to see what it was it was a doe then spotted to kids behind looked like 2 does then on the other corner 2 more doe well peed off then spotted a doe kid and a buck the one I have been chasing for 2 years plus then in the far corner another doe with 2 kids now this is all in one field the nearest was about 250 yards the buck was in the far right corner at about 600 yards too far for me so waited and watched for another buck anyway the next farm has a pheasant pen in the next field and must have been feeding up as spooked all the deer 11 in total on a 20 acre stubble but only one buck anyway the buck ran and I lost sight and waited I was on the opposite side of the raveen anyway he appeared right in the middle of the field and stopped at aprox 150 yards looking straight at me neck shot and dropped him stone dead left it 10 mins in case I missed a buck in nothing heart was pounding the best buck of my life been trying to get him for 2 years however his gens have been well passed on he was the dominant buck on the farm and has dune his time just one question when I grabbed his his antler sorry forgot to mention he was a seven pointer are they rare? It snapped of why is that normal or not for the antlers to snap off from the bottom I lost one on the way back to the farm and went back and found it as it was the best one i have had? I will post some photos tomorrow.

    New to stalking, 250-300 yard neck shot ????? Reckless shooting if you ask me but looking at the time of the post just in from the pub! Nobody should be trying to neck shoot deer at these distances

    Firstly well done on getting your buck after waiting 2 weeks or more but neck or head shot for me are a no no unless very close in seen to many deer where head and neck shot have gone wrong

    If you didn't know the exact range, how the hell did you know the bullet placement/drop!! a 50 yards window in judgment is reckless and also too far for neck shooting deer imo, but some others will have there own opinions on neck shooting! I do neck shoot but must have the correct conditions, but not at those ranges.
    atb blue.

    Hi John welcome to the site 2years after the buck well done but neck shooting at that distance is unacceptable the reason the antler came off is the buck was probably getting ready to cast them but someone may tell you different
