One for the Chillier…One for Nature.

Welding under a grain trailer yesterday morning was not on my bucket list of jobs, however a good breeze knocked of a few points off the Richter scale in the evening!

The surrounding ground holds Muntjac but very few pass through as I’ve had cameras set out over a long time. The wheat straw is still rowed up awaiting the bailer boys; this is pain for foxing as they disappear in a second. Walking down hugging the hedge I could see a 20 yard square not been cut, the header could easy reach it but it was left.

I pulled up around 100 yards as you just never know, a little bit of movement with a doe nibbling on the wheat. Through the scope she looked young but I waited for a while in case there was something in toe.

As I confirmed in the scope she was a young doe with no foetus after the clean out, the wheat square was green so that was why it was left also a nice soft feed for the doe.
Iv'e had some good pigeon shooting of late so I calling in on those who let me go with a meat thank you...

An hour plus and three fields later I found a fox working the stubble but she kept hopping rows as they do, so with this time of year I hopped back in the truck and made my way to see if I could cut her off. Still not working so as many times before just walk straight at it, nope!

The wind was in my face so I moved two rows over and she was coming this way, a bit of a scramble with ground like iron but I add a second string to my sticks this time of year for that reason. A quick OI and over she went…
