It’s 8am, scrambling down a 40degree ridge looking any sign of a stand or rub through thick undergrowth when I hear the frogs start.... heart rate increasing a grab the Binos and scour the scrub below me for any sign of movement with no luck... .
I take a mere 5 steps then hear this hair raising croak to my left less than 20m from my position then seen a tip emerge from the tree line, looking straight at me, I was right in his stand. Chambering a round into the Mark V I bring the rifle to shoulder and wait for the opportunity to present a clean shot, he croaked then turned presenting a quartering shot allowing me to thread a shot into the boiler room taking out both lungs and resting the projectile above his heart!
He ran a mere 30m before realising his predicament when I witnessed a dominant buck fly out of another stand and flog this buck dead to his feet and push him a further 50m down the slopes!
Sorry about the moon legs @bsmith_outdoors 😂🤙🏻 Fiochhi projectile pic in comments 😉
