....but bucked up later ( sorry 😂) ...out with a mate who's been looking after a couple of perm's for me while I've been in Spain..we were out at first light , weather wise it was quite misty with a slight breeze that continually changed direction , I only see one doe and her fawn on my side of the estate , my pal see 100 plus in various groups but nothing that was within shootable distance , breakfast ,followed by high seat moving,  as we left the vehicle my pal said you might as well take a gun , sods law we will bump into one if we dont ...less than fifty yards from the truck , after clattering about getting the fold up out of the trailer this buck stood looking at us from from the top of the track we were going down.
