Doc for the record.

look at my signature, theres my web site.

also I have an advert in shooting times in the roe special coming out soon.(which all cost me, but is tax deductable).

Sporting rifle advertises me, as do alot of local gun shops and gun clubs.

I also have a large client base of regulars and have at least x4 police counties who send me novice stalkers for mentoring.

All these have access to you tube, my web site and any other way I communicate.

They all still send / recomend me. so as far as your view, your entitled to it, you will not stop the way I do things so save your breath.

If someone shoots a fox deer or whatever and the animal is dead, and they want a trophy from it be it antler tail or whatever, I have no problem with that, its dead and will go to the food chain or get thrown in the hedge to rot down.

Time for you to wake up and realise there are more ways to have a life/business than yours.

I could do things different, I don't and I do ok, so accept that, read the others views on here, many of whome carry far more respect then me (put together) and you ever will and let it drop.

People want and enjoy the photos/posts, people don't.

I will never please everybody all of the time.

You have quoted an old saying,

well so will I

one thats popular with yorkshire men.

take me as i am or fook off.

I might be "pork" but i don't want to be anything else. :thumbs:

All those contributing factors you mention are indeed what contribute to poor shooting along with piss poor preparation of kit,anxiety,pressure and weather conditions that you forgot to mention.None of us set out with these in mind but unfortunately they crop up during an outing especially the pressure issue when in company .I get it and i've shot thousands of deer.I know how to control it but others don't.Maybe we will see a few pics from you about your trips out or a vid or two but then again maybe not .Just to conclude, RE- Johns advertising ,there is a recession on mate or has that not reached the good ole USA yet,lol.

If you read my post you'll see "Complacency, ignorance, stupidity, arrogance, incompetence, lack of concentration, lack of attention to detail or poor attitude". I think these take into account those you mentioned e.g.piss poor preparation of kit,anxiety,pressure and weather conditions. If you pull the trigger when attempting a marginal shot due to weather, environment, company, or pressure. You need to seriously look at your attitude.IMO I accept that mistakes can and do happen,. But I also believe the less gung ho you are the less frequently the mistakes are made.

I'm not that competent with the digital technology we have at our disposal in these modern times and have little or no interest in getting up to speed on it. So I'll have to disappoint in regard to pics and vid's of my hunting trips. My hunting buddy Harvey does have an old russian built supa8 cine camera with a stock of unused film in his store room. Is that any good? ;)

You are a fraud sir and as such deserve no place in this fine establishment so f**k off you pretender.Did you not read all my insults before replying politely

The video is great for showing how it can easily go wrong and how to get the animal down once it goes wrong. Everyone who has stalked any wild animal from your first rabbit to the biggest stag gets the fever! I've seen royal marines take 3 shots to nail a broadside red stag at that range, even they get it wrong.

 

When i was working as a keeper we had a no neck/head shot policy for guests as this was when it was more likely to go wrong. :yes:

Well, Bang goes another good thread, sent to ruination by some arsehole who has only been on site a matter of days.

Let the man alone ffs, he's earning his money, doing his job and letting us share it with him ( not the money bit :icon_redface: ), warts and all. More real life stuff on this site is whats needed, not keyboard wannabees.

 

Keep at it John, i'll be looking out for future posts anyhow.

 

Regards

i enjoyed the footage. john maybe you should stick to the deer. if you cant show respect to the fox you would be better leaving that task to someone that can :hmm:

 

apart from that small observation. i enjoy your posts :D

      I have seen Lurchers used for bits of roughshooting but nothing on them tracking deer. Just wondering if anyone here had any stories or information.

      After seeming to spend most of the weekend messing about I managed to get out this evening and extended an invite to a fella I work with who has a young dog he’s gundog training. He lives near a bit of ground I shoot and his 10 mth bitch was making good progress so I said bring her along if he wanted. It would make a nice change to have the security blanket of a dog to help you find those last light runners!
      Anyway, we did a bit of walking - the dog saw something I didn’t but I didn’t realise til a roe was bounding away. After that the dog needed another mile to calm itself down!
      Got to a nice observation point just before last light and had just got comfortable when an adult doe and Buck still in hard antler came bounding into the field. They relaxed and began to graze, obviously by themselves. The dog was unsighted when doe took the 6.5 square in the chest and dropped on the spot. We took the dog to where the deer entered the field and fair play to her she went straight to it... handy👍. 
      Another plus point was my mate was there to drag it up the hill! Now that’s a result! She was a nice plump doe... made the fella sweat some!

      Up to see in the dawn which promised to be a decent day . Got to a local perm in plenty of time to evaluate the wind and where to head for first . The very first field held what appeared to be a tiny button buck on its own and just what I needed for a chap I’m working for at the moment who’s been pestering for a beast . Easy stalk to within 70 yards , deer feeding slowly away unaware . On sticks and back of the head shot to which 8 more explode from the hedge including a buck still in hard antler . No point in dropping anymore today so watched them move on into next field . Just about to start gralloch when 3 more came trotting down the hedge towards me a doe and two followers . Few about here  it’s seems . Gralloched the youngster during which I decided to break the H bone , yes I know spelling lol He was a bit shitty around back end and to avoid the knife. Getting soiled that was the best practice I felt . Pushed down as I’ve done many times and the knife snaps , an outdoors swing blade which I favour over the rest tbh . Luckily I wasn’t cut but could have been . Will be contacting them ASAP I think . Saw several more deer including a munty which I would of had if it never rumbled  me at 150 yds . Cracking morning . Lovely sun rise and a deer . What else is there to life 👍🏻

      This was a strange buck. I have some permission on a small farm owned by two of the best people I've ever met. So, when I stop by to visit the conversation runs pretty long. This means I get set up late in my stand. I use a climber so this has to be packed out and set up. I was sitting on the corner of standing corn, and the wood lot. There were just enough acorns falling to maybe entice a few deer to leave the corn. About 20 minutes into my sit I saw this guy and I thought I would pass. But he lingered in the area and attacked every deer that tried to cross from the corn to the acorns. We are talking maybe 6 or 7 deer. As the light faded he moved to the corner of the corn and made a scrape. That's all I could take. So, I slowly stood up and as quietly as I could I switched around so I was facing the tree and could shoot to the corn side. Well just then he moved off and jumped a fence to the neighboring property. Then he jumped back and seemed to be following my trail past my blind? So, as quietly as I could I slowly turned around yet again facing into the wood lot. As soon as I was in position there he was and I let fly. I heard a perfect thwack and he jumped like he should and ran about 30 feet to the edge of the corn. There he attacked another deer I had not seen and simply stood there. After I while I got to thinking I screwed up somehow and better shoot him again. Sooo, I rummaged around in my pockets as quietly as I could and found My pull cord. (I'm using a crossbow) and pulled another bolt from my quiver. I had to raise my 57 yo old leg up and over the rifle rest on my stand and insert my foot in the brace to pull the string back to cock it. No sooner had I pulled it back and he bolted into the corn. (I hate corn) I heard him tearing up things in there and thought great he attacking another deer. But it was his death throws and I found him without too much trouble.
      This was my first ever gut shot so I did screw up.

      2 Big Roe bucks shot with a Sako a7 in .308 using 150gr Hornady bullets. Swarovski Z4i & ELRange.
      We are on the hunt this week for Roe Bucks. Good numbers of deer on this ground showing some huge heads. In this video we show a great trophy buck taken and a smaller 6 pointer as well.

      The first buck is a cracking buck still in its youth and the second is only a couple years old but has thrown tremendous antlers for such a young animal.

      We spotted a big trophy on the same ground earlier in the morning but have decided to leave that for someone else to pull the trigger!
