Thread: Sebs First Sika hind

    Sebs First Sika hind

    Seb with his first Sika Hind shot last week.

    We were looking for an old stag that had been eluding me for the last 2 months, but had I seen him in and around a particular area of my ground, but to be fair he moves on and off the ground.

    We were stalking on the top side to get round the wind when we spotted a different stag and hinds feeding on the edge of the wood, so we made a plan to try and get round them and give me a back drop and see if there were any for taking.
    During this manoeuvre we were dropping down a bank when I spotted a group of hinds and calfs feeding in the wood some 100 yards away.
    We stopped for a look see and I decided that the one to the rear could be shot and it would be ok for Seb this time if he wanted but its my .270 so I asked him but by the time I had finished he was laid down waiting.
    At this point the hind to the rear lifted its head and was looking straight at us, with a quite front foot stamp with the rest of the group lifting there heads. I told Seb take the shot which he did, I donít want to alarm him by saying be blood quick its about to go and he did not have long, He placed the shot a little high (middle Lung) from the reaction I could see and off she went with the others.
    Now its getting dark and its Sika, she ran a good 200 yards shot with a 150gr Nosler partition. into the wood. Seb did most of the honours when we found her and lardering when we got back, but the drag was me again Wadas!! And we both realised we had not much time to find here and were a lucky hence Iím now looking for a dog to track and Malc your right in your reply to my other post thanks.
