Fallow Buck

Recommended Posts

was out weekend before last and got this buck, i pulled up at my permission at first light and the minute i opened the door i could hear him grunting, he was around 800 yrds away as the crow flies but between me and him was rough ground mainly 5 ft tall ferns that are dead but not rotted down yet. bucks rut here every year but i never venture in there as i no the only way to get a animal out is by dragging it as a quad wont even get in there. i thought i would have a go and worry about the drag if i got him. 1 hour and 15 minutes later i was within 100 yrds of him, he was on a small hill in oak ash and beech so it was fairly clear. i could hear him but couldnt see him so i got to about 80 yrds and put the gun on the sticks and waited, i could see 4 does milling around then he appeared. he never took a step after the shot and was shot into one shoulder and exited behind the other. took me three hours to get him back to the track, i had to beat a path through the ferns with my sticks about 100 yrds at a time then go back and pull him.up and same again. he wasnt big he went 46 kg dressed but such a enjoyable stalk.post-48323-0-89108900-1478723862_thumb.jpgpost-48323-0-59708300-1478723876_thumb.jpgpost-48323-0-01127100-1478723892_thumb.jpg

46kg seems plenty big enough on your Tod mate - nice going and a lovely buck. A bit of sweat and toil adds to the sense of achievement...

i got in on a similar buck 2 weeks ago, had the safety catch off twice but left him cos it would have taken most of the day to get him out.
