    Weekend In Hereford with Wayne,Andy & Dave

    Well ladies and gents Dave has just emailed me the pickies so heres the write up

    Setting off to meet up with Wayne and Andy in Hereford it wasnt long before the sunny Friday in Poole made way for the most horendous rain the closer i got to Hereford..

    Just to add to the luck with my Ranger of late having been rescued from a ditch in Horsham by Malc was then rear ended on the M5 junction by some muppet that must have fallen asleep ..

    Fortunately his vehicle was a right mess as my tow bar had demolished his front end and i think he could tell as i said you repair yours that it wasnt up for debate as i drove off ..

    After driving through nearly all of the country back roads in Hereford courtesy of my Garmin Nuvi it was great to arrive to a warm welcome from Wayne,Andy and fellow site member Dave..

    Sorted in the B+B Dave and i had a great meal in the local pub and after a few sherberts it was off to bed for the 5am wake up..

    The guys had really done theyre homework noting the weather conditions and knowledge of the land so Dave set off with Andy and i set off with Wayne..

    Moving through the fields to various pieces of woodland i started off in typical fashion as throwing my size tens over the galvy gate i must have startled the deer in all surrounding counties

    There were signs everywhere that this ground had a large population of deer so i had every confidence it was just a matter of time..

    Moving into some thick woodland i felt a little less confident as i was reminded of a Wallace & Grommit sketch where i felt like i was wearing the huge boots finding every stick and twig whilst Wayne "ninja" Davies seemed to miss every one

    It was bloody hard going through the woods and creeping in we spotted a small group..
    On the sticks there was plenty of time as we were sure the deer were relaxed and waited for an opportunity..
    Shot taken we both looked at each other as another twelve we hadnt seen started running..
    Having reloaded and repositioned the sticks the deer made off and another shot was heard..


    Wayne and Andys knowledge of their ground and stalking skills had meant both Dave and i had winded and stalked into areas supporting each others position..

    Andy and Dave were sat waiting as the deer we bumped ran out of cover and Dave had his Fallow..

    We both enjoyed a further stalk in the afternoon and having swapped partners due to me showing no aptitude of ever making a ninja..Wayne got Dave another Fallow and i had a great stalk with Andy..

    This was one of my best experiences to date with some great fellas that are at the top of their game..

    Many thanks to Wayne,Andy and Dave for a great and memorable weekend

    They might be good but they aint pretty

    Hi Terry
    Nice write up mate.

    I only thing I will add is thanks to Max the dog who gave us the edge in the woods after making me aware that there were deer in that part of the wood and for finding yours, I still reckon it fell in that ditch and drowned

    Shame about the weather rolling in at night otherwise we could have ended up with a few more

    Cheers to you and Dave for making it a good day for us, OHH I had a shave now so I look much more handsome

    Cheers Wayne

    Hi guys pleased to see you all, Wayne you must have liked the look of my beard so much your growing one yourself now.
    Max looks great and coming on a treat.
    Breeze pointed her first deer last week and tracked it 20-30m through cover to where it was laid dead.
    they are both coming on a treat EH?.
    sad news though Gus (their dad) is lame alot now I think hes nearing the end of his working life.
    Never a deer dog but one of the best bird dogs a man could wish for.

    Hi John
    Sorry to here about Gus have you got another litter on the way by him????

    I was chuffed to bits with Max on that stalk, he also winded some Fallow at last light about 400 yards across open ground, they were out of sight but he new they were there, unfortunately by the time we had got on them we had lost the light.

    Ive sent you an email of what happens if you don't shave
