Doe in the snow

Recommended Posts

I was out first thing the other morning mooching in the snow.I was stalking along the edge of a wood when suddenly a roe doe appeared approx 120 yards in front of me. I got my rifle on the sticks and watched her for a few seconds , she then stood in a perfect broadside position , I steadied myself and went for the boiler room shot.

 

She immediately kicked out and disappeared into the wood. I was confident of a good hit. On inspecting the scene I saw a few drops of blood and lung . I then proceeded to follow the blood trail which consisted of sprayed blood consistent with a shot in the lungs. I eventually found the doe after trailing for a good 100 yards , she had expired after crashing into a tree ....

When a deern runs on a shot like this it is a reflex reaction like a headless chicken and a lung/heart shot is best practice.........AND A LEGAL METHOD.

Dogs are not and the chase stresses the beast more and may ruin the meat (in relation to flavour).

I come across far more wounded by dogs deer then will ever see wounded by large calibre deer rifles.

I dont want to enter into a row over dogs here, I use one to trail wounded deer. But a coment like yours stag on a stalking topic is out of order and usualy comes from someone acting outside the law.

Not getting at you mate :whistling: but when you shoot a beast Heart/Lung shot as you are meant to do 9 times out of 10 it will stagger or run on as the Adrenalin pumps to its heart, not a slow death its "already dead" and dont want to get at dog guy's, but been out and seen yearling Roe Deer run until they cannie run anymore more, and did not die a very good death :no: but hey Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year for 2010 :thumbs:
