If an extra opportunity should arise after your successful stalk that would be fine, however you are restricted to two Roe per outing.

Companions are welcome and you may take your Venison home with you for a moderate £1 per pound. Here's a link if you want an idea of the ground - -

Cracking day out yesterday John, 9 Roe seen, one of those was a Buck, one Doe shot.

Nice ground, relatively flat, good woodland with upto 200m visability through the trees. A thoroughly enjoyable (But hard) stalk with the weather conditions.

Cheers

Been another grand day here. A lovely dry day for a change without the accompanying gale force winds!
Had two new Stalkers out - - one in the morning, the other this afternoon. Both got their first Roe after successful Stalks. Everyone happy - - couldn't be better.
Still days left towards end of January and here and there in March.

Thanks for that Mark - - a cracking Doe laden with fat. 44lbs, skinned, cleaned and ready for the Butcher. Your shot was straight through her heart at 100 yards. You can't get much better than that for your first Roe with the first shot through your new Rifle.

- - another beautiful morning here. Was out from first light. Almost dead calm though. Saw 13 Roe which was unlucky for us 'cause we never got one of them !

Never mind - - we only have to be lucky the once - - they have to be lucky all the time !!

Hi David - - there's plenty about that's for sure. Got another lovely young Doe this afternoon. V crunchy underfoot so it made for difficult stalking.
Anyway I look forward to your visit - - and I'm very hopeful that luck will be on our side !

JR,

You need to train your Bucks to stop crossing the road infront of vehicles, my eldest was surprised how big the Buck was this morning that crossed infront of us,
it was nearly on the bonnet of my car!

Still in velvet, but a bonny boy!

Hi Malcolm -- thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I was passing that field about 4.30pm on Monday afternoon and was amazed to see six others grazing with him consisting of two young Bucks, two mature Does and two young Does. Yesterday all the fields were sprayed with sludge so I think it'll be a week or so before they return to that spot. I was looking forward to getting a much closer look at them all but looks like I'll have to be patient !
Anyhow thanks for coming along and all the best till next time.

Hello TJ - - I just noticed that I hadn't replied to your post. Thanks for that info - - how far up on the verge were you before he managed to get away ?? :rofl:

Hopefully you'll get a pop at one soon.

Out with John yesterday morning, lots of Roe seen, 7 Bucks and 6 Does. Finally caught up with a mature 6 pointer in a small pine wood. Stalked this buck on 2 previous outings but he always outwitted me, 37lbs dressed. John you are a gent and look forward to the next outing next week.
