Game bag continues.. 11-

Season 2020-2021 was my best so far - lots of valuable experience, and some success, too.

Meat in the fridge, and my modest part in making our roads safer. Looking forward to the next.

No. Date Type Of Game Remarks
16. Oct 13 White tailed deer, buck > 1 yr, but very low points The animals hardly pay attention to my first shot, most of them stand still, and there is another buck showing his side. I know my first shot is not going anywhere, so I decide to take another shot - and yet another buck goes down. He´s somewhat bigger, having a hard time dragging him. Luckily I get help and get praise for my shooting tonight.Way to open my deer season!!
15. Oct 13 White-tailed deer, young buck < 1 yr First highseat of the season, and I´ve decided to be patient, no matter what happens. And sure enough there is a doe with a calf on the field, but they are behind some bushes and trees, they are safe. Then the owner of the property turns up in his tractor, apologizing but I say go ahead and get done whatever needs doing, so he makes an attempt to drag a huge log, but the rope snaps and he gives up and leaves me. From the corner of my eye, I see movement. Aahh, just a fox - I let him carry on his business. Then a doe with a calf, another pair and all in all, 5 deer are within my range. I wait patiently for them to turn their side towards me, and I also carefully select the the younger animals, to make sure I will not take a mother. And the young buck is getting to the ideal position, and finally I take the shot - and it´s a perfect kill!
14. Feb 10 Roe deer, young female < 1 yr I came for a white tailed, but will settle for a roe deer! There were four of them, but just two made their way towards the feeder. They had their backs against me, so I waited until they were heading back to the forest, and took the shot., the one in the front was smaller, so I chose her. And got her!
13. Jan 14, 2023 Roe deer, female I´d just arrived and did not expect anything happening any time soon, it was still daylight. The window was closed and my Benelli Lupo standing against the wall. But a group of roe deer very carefully approached the feeding station. They halted, looked around, but eventually made their way. Two of them were standing with their buttocks against me, but there was a female sideways. So I took the shot and she fell immediately.
12. Oct 1, Whitetailed deer, young female < 1 yr I saw a pack of whitetailed very early in the evening, as I was stalking. They were way too far away about 300-350 m, at first I saw two, female and her calf, soon joined by another female. I kept an eye on them, but thought they would head away from me, and at first they did. But then they decided otherwise, so I waited until they were about 60 meters from. I chose the calf, as you should, when trying to manage the population.
This was my first ever kill w/ my Benelli Lupo 6,5 Creedmore. What a comfortable gun to shoot!
11. Sep 1, 2022 Whitetailed deer, young buck < 1 yr Great opening! Alone, eating by the side of a harvested field. About 150 meters, great conditions, took the shot. A forest with thick spruces and a hil behind the animal, perfect spot to take the shot, so I did.
