    Hi

    Went walkabout again and this chap came back with me.........no.2 for 2022!

    Spotted him 100m approx.heading into a belt of trees. Knowing the route he would take, I turned left and into the stand of trees he was heading through. Tucking in next to a tree I set my rifle on the quad-pole, zoom checked at 4.5, and safety on.

    Ten minutes later with no sign of movement made me wonder if he had slipped by......
    Then, a 'shape', the other side of a shrub, 20m approx. away caught my attention. At this distance I dare not lift my binos to take a closer look! The 'shape' then moved, right to left a little bit and became a Muntjac!

    Assessing that he would, once finished chewing whatever, step into a window between the shrub he was behind and the next one, maybe 0.5m wide. If he stopped there then it was his mistake, if not well he would see a 2-legged shape as he came nearer and bolt.

    Suffice to say, a minor adjustment due to proximity, safety off, and as he crossed the gap a muffled 'oi', which made him step back to locate the sound and present his shoulder - safety off and trigger tickled. Job done.

    Front quartering shot, went through the shoulder and made mush of the heart. He flipped over in his shadow, raised his head and then put it down before the body gave a final shiver.
