    A shame to see this!

    Seen some good sized stags on Sunday, 2 had cast and were left and another was a good long antlered Spiker also left but the last Stag of the day was the one that left me a little disappointed.
    Left to rot with no meat retrieved, in some of the most open forest i have ever come across, you could see it from over 50m away.

    It sucks to see that. Mind you from a value to her perspective it is better off out of the gene pool
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeah it was very close to a farmers boundary, 30-40m and very visible from there as well so he could of been hit under a light.
    I will take the head from it one day but at the moment i will leave him as he was quite stinky when i rolled it for the pic.

    Yeah not the best head you will find but the genetics in the area aren't that great for a start.

    Have you been for a walk around to assess the damage?

    I have come across something similar. Found 3 stags in one day shot and left . One had a leg removed and left next to it. And the other two with only the back steaks removed. Small or in even heads on them. Only 3 hrs walk in from the road. Very frustrating!!!
