    First film from this years deer hunting

    Nothing special about this. Just walked up and shot them, was lucky not to hit the deer that walked behind my no 1 deer hidden from my view.

    Nice. The 300NM whacks them a bit harder than the 6.5x284.

    Max seems to love finding deer. The old dog is even better, but not so good around strangers (me) and very protective about her deer.
    The 300 NM is an absolute hammer on deer as later films will show.
    I am in the Highlands area.
    I'm using a Blaser R8. The deer are difficult enough to recover in a bad spot (cannot butcher them, only gralloch) and a carry all the way is not an option as many deer needs shooting each day (I believe the needed cull is 1200 to 1500 deer per year with only a few hunters to solve that).

    Seems silly to ask but how come you can't bone them out and pack it out that way?

    Maybe we should have a forum hunt. I have a bit of annual leave saved up and 150 rounds of 308 hahah

    Nice video and shooting. You certainly have your work cut out if that many deer need culling.

    They on sell them to a game dealer who only takes full carcasses, which are then processed and sent to restaurants.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Spot on!
    There is a lot of deer to be shot in Scotland and not too many that are willing to do it or have the infrastructure for it when the lifting gets heavy. It is one thing to shoot them, but they also need a clean recovery and a full days work can mean 10 or 20 deer to manhandle to an access point.

    I have to say this work is a lot more physically demanding than the roe deer I've been doing earlier and I certainly have learnt to respect the guys that grows old working with this kind of bodily abuse. I could not have done it fulltime.

    I see...

    As mentioned. Surely some aerial hunting would be the way to go

    The antis voice is a lot more powerful in U.K. Than nz unfortunately, and seeing " poor deer " being chased by chopper is a no-no politically !
    and remember semi autos are ban in that country

    and the flying hour in a chopper over there is probably a bit more than what it used to be in nz during the glorious years.

    They also have to compete against the cheap nz deer meat exported in Europe . So if too much meat hits the market , prices drop and then it is not worth getting up in the morning to do it.

    Certainly doesn't sound like a hunters paradise like nz is.

    The last great southern adventure aye.

    Cheers for clarifying.
