  1. Well I've been deer stalking for 10 years now, roe and fallow mostly round these parts. This was the result of a solo stalking trip at the weekend, my first ever Red. I have seen a group of young stags on the trail cams for over a year but never caught up with them...till now. It was no mean feat getting him out of the woods and into the truck. I'm a tree guy so using pulleys and ropes I managed to drag it uphill 150m out of the wood. Using a combination of gravity, a board, rope and pulleys persuaded it into the back of the truck. 10 minutes stalking and 3hrs of grunting later I hit the road🤪. It was a strange stalk, I literally just stepped into the wood and spotted a 'deer leg' shaped tree at 70m.... then the flick of an ear. Up with the binos and a group of 6 red gradually appeared. One beast selected itself broadside and dropped to the shot, as often happens the rest took a few paces in confusion, a second deer could have easily been taken but I knew I had my hands full. I gave him a few minutes to pass whilst I had a 'moment' to think about what just happened... I'm pretty chuffed as I gave up pheasant shooting this season to concentrate on stalking. The 6.5x55 140gn sst home load did it's job well. A great start to the year😁.
