went back down sunday

bad mistake

somewhat jaded from the night before alcohol comsumption.

-16c outside with windchill -22c.froze me nut sack off,felt pretty ill sunday night.

i got down there 12.30pm and tapped out 4pm.just seen does n fawns.

 

just back from the forestry.the sparky in work hasnt hunted.so i offered to take him.

boss let us go early,got to blind 2pm. -9c windchill -15c. big storm forecasted for tonight and tomorrow.

bait has been hammered.looking promising.

ran thru the do's and donts.bullet placement etc etc

4.15pm a doe starts snorting behind the trees,i can see her with two fawns.

she fcks us around,buggers off then bam 10 mins later just trolls right into the bait.

she is head on and feeding.the fawns are blocking the shot.

i get the sparky to poke the muzzle out of the blind,ready.he just rustles his jacket,the doe does a runner

then stops turns broadside i said shoot her,boom,doe runs off.

i said to the spark how did you miss,he says she is down.

OMG he plugged a fawn. bullet placement perfect just behind the shoulder but on the wrong deer.

showed him the 2min gutting job and skinning it was easier than plugging me socks off.

he enjoyed the experience and was really happy he has come home with 'some' meat lol

broken his virginity,i knwo it could of been a lot worse and he doesnt need a bad experience first time out

well things are somewhat better now

she hasnt chewed nothing for a while apart from one cats head lol

had her nearly a year and she is coming on fine.she really doesnt like any other dog,cat,squirrel, coyote ( she can hear them yipping) and her eyesight and nose are amazing for picking up the scent of hares around town here

the patterdale still fights like fck with it. Rather hilarious at times 

i will post up some pics and maybe a short vid
