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.

Congratulations! Those little guys are on my list. Hopefully, one day I'll get my chance to hunt them.

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.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
