This thread has a misleading title! There is clearly more than 50 deer!

Cool

A week ago. Craig shot this in the gloom at about 80 yards and as you can see the shot wasn't perfect. It happens.

No blood, and initially the dogs weren't keen - but after looking around a bit I heard Tilly yip which means she was onto a live wounded one. Her and Eva tracked it for a few hundred yards through the scrub in the dark and grabbed it in a creek where Craig was able to finish it. I arrived a few minutes later Smiley

I wonder how many deer get lost because there isn't any sign of a hit or blood?

She had to find and grab this one for me. It was a poor shot in bad light.

Easy peasy.
Had been out for the evening looking for a stag. Saw a few deer but didn't fire a shot because I didn't want to disturb things. On the way home in the twilight I looked up onto a face and there were 2 hinds.

So out of the truck, and rifle across the dog box. Pop, and deer down with a clean neck shot at 200 yards. It was well dark after I crossed a gorge and creek. I kept Tilly in until I was really confounded about where exactly it was. Sent here off and I was up the wrong spur - she soon found it.



Dropped the deer off at the butchers on the way home at midnight for sausages and salami for relations.
The relations have been anxious that I might lose my rifles as things tighten up - blatant self interest from them Smiley
