Before the snow... doe

Recommended Posts

Saturday dawn was Baltic cold but looked to be best of the weekend. Managed to tag a roe doe as she emerged from some nice thick rhododendrons. That’s four in four trips here but the woodland stalking takes some getting used to, it’s all pretty close stuff and I’m not getting many chances to get a second shot away before they disappear into cover. 

Passing the owners chicken coup on the way to the gralloch site I disturbed a fox who ran up a the side of a steep quarry. The cover was really thick and I only just managed to track him in the bins. Lucky for me he stopped in a small opening against a some rocks.. unlucky for him he took the 6.5 in the chest. Absolute bugger of a job climbing up to find him and confirm things but you can’t just assume it’s dead.

They seem to be Rich... you only get one chance to make a good first impression!

Finding bucks in all that cover could be another story though so I’ll bank the brownie points now!
