The closing of the hind season

... and I thought I shot these

The hind stalking season closes tomorrow and we have been trying to get a last few stalks in. We haven’t been helped by a miserable turn in the weather which has brought low cloud, wind and rain.

We are particularly keen to make a cull target for sika, but the sika hinds have made themselves scarce in this weather, presumably keeping warm in the depth of the woods. However these two hinds and a calf decided to feed on the hill across from the house, in full view of the front door. Neil and I had a fun little stalk to get into them without disturbing a larger group of red hinds which are deemed off limits so close to the house. I was lucky enough to be able to shoot all three before they scattered too far.
