Thread: Foggy stalk

    Foggy stalk

    Got up early yesterday and in high seat by 6.15 all I could see was fog. Eventually could see about 200mtrs. But nothing about.
    went for a walk in an adjacent field which was wood to the east with wood belt to the north and south. Got halfway down the east side looking into wood,then saw a small herd trotting from north to South over potato field.Stalked back round to south side within about 80mtrs which enabled me a safe shot, damn fog dropped again and when it cleared they were going north again.
    So stalked round the perimeter of wood to a high seat and got a clear shot at about 150 mtrs.
    she weighed 36k in the fur.

    Hi WMV,
    Good larder filler!
    Any more info on rifle/ammunition details ?
    I'm intrigued by the apparent lack of an exit wound at 150 yds.
    Not being funny, just asking !
    cheers, Tedward.

    Hi Tedward,

    Unfortunately they don't go into my larder, they go to the estate.
    The rifle is a Savage Weather Warrior in 7mm-08 I was using Barnes TTSX with 44gr of Varget.
    Must admit I was surprised at no exit wound as the last one I shot at 70yds took three ribs on the way out.
    mind you the heart was completely shattered,it just took a couple of steps turned round and dropped.

    Cheers Steve.

    Well done mate, plenty of fallow and munties in Ipswich area. Nice to get out and shoot a few, paying game dealer rates for a carcass is cheap enough anyway. ATB

    YEs I can buy at game dealer rates, I don't bother as any Munties are mine plus I have another permission with plenty of Munties on.
