congratulations Gyr on your first roe buck.

Gyr has stalked with me this weekend. He came up and we had a couple of stalks culminating in a 70 yard shot off sticks at a roe buck yearling. It was an ideal cull animal. Taken with my 7mm08 in windy and slightly wet conditions. Whats more, a jolly nice chap.

Good on you Gyr,
I'm so glad to hear of your success! Where are the pictures?
It truly was a wet affair, I know the two guys out with Malc had some of the same weather.

Well done Gyr. If you had the same weather as we did you were up against it. It was bloody awful in West Sussex, not the kind of weather Roe deer show much in !! Still Nick took a nice thick antlered old Buck, so it was a reasonably succesful morning.

Andy dont worry mate I will sort you something out in the summer when the little buggers are in the rut, we will do a couple of stalks next time. If not I will see what can be done about Scotland for you ;)

Bloody marvellous! Well done Gyr, I'm so pleased to hear that so many members are getting out stalking together. I've asked Tika 308 to come out with me on my patch sometime. Its only 50 acres but at least he won't need to take long shots! :lol:

i was out on Saturday in Devon on the kind offer of a forum member.Unfortunately the weather was horrific and we were lucky to see a few does in those conditions. I cant blame those bucks for keeping tucked up and warm - i know i would've preferred to!

Im happy to report that it was the perfect conditions to put the jahti jakt kit through it's paces. it performed very well and kept me dry and warm. Well worth the money!
