Another deer hunting season ended and new roebuck season in Scotland opens! Time to summarize.
I do have a logbook (and encourage everyone to have one!) where I write down all my outings, what I saw, what I got, weather, etc. It often helps me make a decision where to go at particular time of year. I usually have a plan where to go and where I know particular animal I am interested in should hang about, but I also often especially in summer do not have a clue where to go. In that case logbook can be quite useful and I try and go where I saw deer previous years.
Last season was quite good, but I skipped a few things I used to do. I usually got at least one wild boar, but not this past season. I usually also got a few days wildfowling and pigeon shooting, but I had no chance last season either…
I got a few roebucks, including probably my best so far. It was particularly memorable as it was one of my first outings with camcorder and I got the footage and a shot. It was my first buck that season.
I also got one Scottish stag. It was a good experience and after a 300m drag I was really exhausted. I am glad I never shot any other stag, but let me tell you I was tempted to do that… In comparison to previous year when we had a red rut in full swing late October, this year I never heard any roaring and really missed all the action or it was very quiet this time.
This season was also good on roe does and I got quite a few and our freezer was usually full during winter months, but now I have some free space again
This is first time I really started filming and thanks to all who watched, subscribed and cared to leave comments. Many people got in touch and I really appreciate all that. I hope you all like what you see and I will try to improve my editing and shooting (both rifle and camera) technique.
Many people got in touch via YouTube and I also got invited deer stalking and it was a great experience. Thanks again for this, you know who you are!
Next season looks quite promising. I should be able again to film some roebuck and wild boar stalking in Poland as well as deer in Scotland.
Thanks a lot again for reading the blog and watching on YouTube!
