Hi Mark
Nice morning to be out, those reds will be glowing like beacons standing in the woods in the sun. 8)

Well what a difference a few hours makes!!
Living on top of a hill HILLCREST ROAD not the best place to try and get out of when it snows 4" deep didn't even attempt to get out stalking it would have been a waste of £250 on my insurance excess .Just as well the neighbours bmw x5 didn't look so good after hitting the tree opposite the junction :lol: have just come back from sledging with the kids great fun :D .
i even dug out my snow camo been in the loft for 15 years :eek:
Will try again tomorrow morning as i have the morning off to attend a conference/course between/by the FC and DI sorry dont know many details but sounds interesting will let you know if any new gossip turns up.
ATB mark.

I sat out in the snow ysterday afternoon. Bloody cold. Out came a fallow doe but cold=low reaction speed and removing cover from lens gave her just enough time to cross the ride. 30 mins later a small herd massed behing my highseat at 30m just on the wrong side of the ground I can shoot on. The urge to shoot was strong but you wouldnt need a bloodhound to track who shot across the boundry, just follow the footprints. Had to chuckle as the deer grunted indignantly as they moved off. Lovely evening

I had the pleasure of being out in the snow yesterday, it was a productive day for once aswell with three Roe does in the larder between my brother and myself. Was hoping for more snow last night but it turned to quite heavy rain instead. Now there is very little snow left but it was good whilst it lasted.

Hi wayne,
The quad would have been good but the sight of deer hanging off the racks might have upset those in town that are not pro hunters i was only thinking of the greater good or else i would have used it :evil:
Well done stone a very good result and one that you will remember for a long time.
Markh you did the right thing a deer is never worth a dodgy shot no matter how tempting. Just about to try my luck with the missus(no not that sort of luck more chance of stalking) .

The snow from England is heading this way. So tomorrow night i must plug the tracktor heater in so it will start. So far we hav'nt had much snow but its not been above freezing since Christmas. Its like a skateing rink out in my yard. I love hunting in the snow :D Easy to drive in the snow. studded tyres is what you need ;)

the roe was just a walk in the park, easy stalk, no drag as i could drive right upto it
the fallow were a little tougher and i could only drag one at a time :cry:
but what a way to play in the snow :evil: :evil:
