This season was a interesting one. The first outing I saw an old buck chasing a young buck away. The young buck jumped over the stream and passed in front of me (2 meters). It was going so fast and I could not move because they where to close. Once I had the big buck in the crosshairs, he was already gone. Chasing down the young buck.
The next outing I went back to the same part of our hunting area. But this time I went for the highseat. The wind changed so the highseat was no option anymore. So I went for a little stalk. I was glassing the forrest line and then I saw the same buck feeding in cover. I crawled and slit through the grass untill I was 75 meters away. The buck layed down so I could only see his antlers. I barked, whistled and screamed. But the buck was not moving. Then I stood up and put my rifle on sticks. The buck stood up to check it out. I could make good shot. The buck jumped of on the shot but i heard the bushes cracking. It must be a good shot.
