    roe buck

    Well a normal day at work and then o got the phone call from a land owner, asking me to take out a cullable roe Buck before the rut starts in august
    well that evening i sat in the high seat over looking a new field of maize nice sunny evening when at about 1800 hours i saw him a little roe buck he came out the wood line i had walked past about 2 hours earlier.
    This was the 2nd outing for the buck as the first outing he presented himself but not a shot i was happy with taking so left him for another evening, well i sat and watch for about 15 minutes as he made his way further into the open ground he was roughly about 150 metres from my seat with that he stopped i placed the crosshairs directly behind the front leg and squeezed the trigger, with that still looking through the scope i saw the beast fold up and drop to the ground not even a movement from the beast.
    waiting some 15 20 minute before approaching the animal i found him exactly where i took the shot with bullet placement exact and going in through behind the front leg exiting the lower neck
    please see picture of what could of been a nasty buck during the rut

    Well done and welcome to the forum! Roe deer are probably my favourite of all the deer and are great to stalk! Would be great if there were some here in NZ!

    Why didn't your pommy forefathers bring them in when they came ? They brought bloddy gorse and influenza instead !

    I sometimes wonder the same thing Munsey. They did bring some pretty good game animals with them...even though some of the larger palmated antlered ones insist on playing hide and seek in Fiordland! ;-)

    Neat little Roe deer. They are characters those things, I used to love sneaking in on them over in Scotland when I worked there. I only shot a handful, but they certainly tasted great.

    and when they left they spread Syphilis throughout the Pacific

    Nice looking animal Gamekeeper. Not the tidiest of racks. Do you get to keep the animal or is it handed over to the land owner?

    Brilliant little deer. Hardly a beast though ha ha ha ha. Welcome aboard by the way

    no for that i pay 200.00 british pound per month and that's the 1st one ive shot in 6 months so some would say an expensive little bugger however i had the option to shoot a lot more but i was selective in my cull and took the animal that's going to cause me damage during the rut i admit a small rack compared to some of the reds and wapiti your fellas have however they are the best stalk in my eyes as im sure a few from here will agree
    i kept the carcass and the head cleaned the head up
