    I was due to be stalking red deer hinds in the Lake District this week, but unfortunately Covid-19 meant the trip had to be postponed until next season.
    I went out with a local guide and shot this muntjac buck from a high seat this afternoon; there'll be meat in the freezer and a new trophy on the wall.

    Too bad on missing out on the chance to go out for a red stag. Congrats on your success on the Muntjac. Cool looking deer.

    Congratulations on your trophy and for being able to post an actual hunting picture for us.
    It's refreshing.

    Thank you, guys. The first deer I shot was a muntjac about 15 years ago. They are well-established in my part of Southwest England, and I've shot quite a few since then, but this is my best so far. They are very good eating, but tough to skin.

    What an awesome “consolation” hunt. My cancelled hunts wind up with me hunting gas for the lawnmower.
