Had a couple of outings over the weekend to try and move the doe cull forward , heavy frosts and northerly winds don't exactly help but as the place was clear I gave it a go ..banking on the deer being tucked in the woods out of the wind I got into the wood , worked up against the breeze and pushed slowly forward , two hours later and after seeing very little I managed to get the dot on a doe and fawn , took her first at about 70 m , the fawn bolted but only went a few yds before stopping to look for the doe , it was also taken ..easy finds for the dog , in the chiller at 64lb and 39lb both were in top condition .

Another outing yesterday afternoon , again cold and frosty on the bits of the estate the sun never managed to reach I found a yearling laying in some course grass down a bank no more than fifty mtr from the track , well above her and resting against a tree she was added to the cull , slightly dodgy recovery , I never realised how steep the bank was until I was half way down on the quad ...that sorted and with the light starting to go I got in the nearest seat more as convenience than expectation but as is the way just at last light out walked another doe .
Gralloched and in the chiller at 59lb64lb ..both in top condition with good fat reserves ..

Great as always sir! I'm certainly not making the most of this crisp dry weather!
