    I got the chance to meet up with some friends who I meet on another forum who are from the UK.
    We first meet face to face at a NASCAR race in IL.
    That next year my wife and I went to the UK for our July anniversary trip in September.
    Spent a few days in and around Manchester then headed to Scotland , while the wives went to London, while we hunted stags. We also got to do some fishing and caught a couple dozen Mackerel.
    After that we spent a week at our other friends place sight seeing. We did some rabbit hunting as well and then meet up with my friends hunt buddy to do some Roe hunting.
    Here are some pics of the trip.

    Very nice! The bases on that Roe buck are unique, perhaps normal for that animal, but unique at least to me.

    Well done. Great Roebuck. A very old non-typical which is the perfect to one to take.

    Wonderful abnormal buck, great trophy to take, congratulations.
    And mackerel over coals, you can't beat it. One of the best tasting fishes in the sea.

    That is one hell of a great Roe trophy.

    Thanks for sharing your adventures. One of these days I want to do a write up on a Roe buck.

    Thanks Guys!
    I was very fortunate to get a buck like that in only a 3 hour hunt. I was only expecting to shoot a doe or two and maybe if I was lucky to shoot a small buck.
    The mate that was leasing that land had never seen that one before in the area.
    He was a old buck who had more than likely been run out of his area and just happened by me.
