Roebuck Stalking in Cornwall

On a warm summer evening and Hawke joins respected deer manager Chris Gale in Cornwall to seek out a mature six-pointer during an evening roebuck stalking. Scanning the field edges using Hawke binoculars and a Hawke Endurance LRF 1500 rangefinder the light is fading fast, they are not hopeful that they will find the type of animal they are looking for.

With summer in full swing, the vegetation is tall and lush making it tricky to see deer. A swirling wind also makes it necessary to keep checking the direction their scent is travelling. Chris’ ground has plenty of roe deer, but they are not able to find any mature males today.

Just as they were about to go home they spot a small buck with thin-looking antlers which they decide to cull to remove the poor genetics from the wild deer gene pool. Using a Sauer rifle topped with a Hawke Frontier 2.5x15x50 Riflescope it is a clean broadside shot for roebuck stalking.

When inspecting the carcass Chris comments that the buck is unusually small and should really be a third bigger. To encourage six-pointers it is necessary to take out the smaller heads. Satisfied that they have contributed to the cull plan they gralloch the young buck and the pair head back to the larder.
