It's all about the windage
Here is one for the record books! Another fine Roe taken out by an amazing shot!
This one was peeking into the fields at a couple of farmers, unsure if she should venture out. The hunter, yours truly, watched and watched trying to decide the best angle on this wily little gal. There was no amount of enticement that would bring this little girl into the clear, and at this range she was a low percentage shot. I decided to take the shot that I had regardless of the range. A perfectly placed round right between her eyes!
No need for a finishing shot, or any shot for that matter. All that was required to give this little girl a healthy respect for humans was a single pine cone dropped precisely, from 3 feet away! That should teach her not to stand beneath my high seat! If she ever shows her nose through that ladder again, Iíll make sure she gets shot in the face with a camera and takes another pine cone in the vitals. These little Roe may be small but they're feisty.
Unfortunatley I missed with the camera at 40 yards, I think she flipped me off.
