Well this morning I went out on a small fruit farm I have permission on. It holds quite a few roe and recently I’ve seen a good few bucks about and also the farm manager has had a small mention and asked if I could pop in
I got there at first light and it’s not the biggest area (about 140 acres) and had a stalk about and spotted a single roe about 200m away feeding, I stalked in further using a hedgerow as cover and took him 90m of sticks with my single shot blaser k95 in .308 loaded with RWS 136gr green eco lead free round. One shot needed as he dropped about 5m away good clean heart shot now in the chiller. All done and finishes by 07.45 lovely morning to be out and nice little six point buck now in the chiller

regards Steve

Very well done. and lovely looking rifle. you think your fruit farm is small try 27 acres. its all or nothing where i am you can very nearly drive up in the truck stick your nose out the window and if theres no deer there then go home. having said that it is one of my favorite places to stalk especially in a few weeks when the blossom is fully out

Had loads of p****takes with regards to wanging a mod on it. My opinion for what it’s worth is we are legally allowed to have and use them (subject to variation etc) so to save my hearing and the dogs why not use it
I appreciate it’s not the done thing with a kipplauf rifle but I thought I would buck the trend. It’s screw cut so I do have the choice. Also the farm is slightly built up with houses in one area

My first permission is 26 acres so I know exactly! what you mean. Yet to see any,let alone grass one,plenty signs of Fallow,Roe,and Muntjac. Just a case of right place right time.

It will come BC. Ive strangely had most success when i thought there was no chance at all. lashing rain the fallow are in the middle of the orchard. wind in wrong direction and seen by the deer but still get a beast. when everything seems perfect you see nothing. One advantage of small pieces of land though is you will know every rise and fall and every change of wind direction. with the wind blowing across the orchard towards the far hedge. i find above the middle oak tree in the hedge the wind comes up the hedge and below the oak it goes completely in the other direction. it bits like this which can help get you in the right spot
