UK Deer Series : Muntjac Stalking
It is a beautiful evening in the Great British Countryside and the team are in Northamptonshire for an epic muntjac stalking outing. As morning breaks, they begin to prepare their equipment. It is a very early start, but it is the perfect time to catch deer on the move.
Today the team are utilising the Hawke Frontier 30 SF 5-30×50 Riflescope, featuring a 6x ratio optical system and 21 layer fully multi-coated optics for ultimate clarity. They pair this with some sturdy and reliable Hawke Endurance 10×56 Binoculars.
They make a sighting but unfortunately the deer are easily spooked and make a quick escape. As the woodland begins to wake up with the sunrise, the odd sighting of small creatures give the team hope for the buck that they are looking for. Luckily, a young buck walks up confidently right in front of the teams’ position. They quickly set up and take the shot. A nice young buck for the cull sheet and a great start to the day.
After gralloching the buck, the team set out on foot to look for further signs of muntjac. They take their time to scan the undergrowth and using the buttolo call to lure in an inquisitive buck. They spot an amazing sight, a muntjac doe with her fawns. But these are not what the team are looking for today. Following the field margins, they spot yet another doe with her young. Somehow weary of the attention, the doe makes a quick escape....with the doe sightings so frequently, the buck can't be far away.
