Stalking since 1987. Amateur. Moderate experience with DSC/DMQ Level 2 Certificate. Current deer calibres 6.5x55 and .30-06. In process of converting to non lead ammo. Good groups on target but non lead ammo must also be safe and kill humanely, effect on Deer and wild boar is next step. DIY...

A Meopta Artemis 7 x 50 scope, 25mm tube, well used with ring marks but good glass and functional as intended. Reticle is reticle 1, which is a classic european reticle with a prominent thick centre post and two other horizontal posts - great for a sharp point of reference and low light.

I’m looking for some help regarding the above.
I shot two fairly large Fallow bucks the other day, (53kg and 75kg gralloched, head and feet removed), and despite having shot a few large beasts before, for the first time I found myself having a bit of grief getting them into the back of...
Sometimes when sitting in the hide for a buck things get a little too close!
First to come along was a doe, shortly followed by a kid who took more than a passing interest in the noise from the camera. No buck, but that's all the more reason to get out again
