Hunt report - roe buck.

Good morning all, just back from a morning's stalking. Harvested a nice roe buck with an 80 yard atlas shot from sticks. The puppy was with us and was quite happy with the shot. Deer clearly DRT...the rifle is in the picture so you can get a grip of the scale. uploadfromtaptalk1398073532621.jpg

Well done.

So where is your beaming countenance to give us scale?

Calibre and bullet mass? Where was entry and exit.

Cheers mate.

I see brains laying on the ground so I can imagine the exit.

Not sure he had time to pucker up but he certainly had time to open his eyes nice and wide....
Overkill..... Better than underkill!
