Just got this one today - rut time - came to a call. I wasn't going to shoot it, however my 13 y.o. bitch was watching it over my shoulder. Older buck - nothing to write home about - dedicated to my dog, along with a 100m blood trail (might be her last). Knew this buck for 2 years - place is remote - I had to carry it in my backpack uphill for an hour or so...sure one of those days...

The roe bock hunt is one of the most beautiful hunts. In Romania the season start on 15 May.The best period for hunting is in May and during the met ( July-August) when you can call them.In June is difficult to shot because is to hot outside and the grass is to big .The people start to cut the grass in June and disturb the roe's .

We shot this bock in the mountain region ...is not the best for roe deer




These are from hill regions:

Looks like a lot of fun..

I find it interesting how it appears in Europe so many use their dogs while hunting deer species..I have never see that here in the U.S.

Keep posting the pictures please..

Last Buck [Re: granhaven]
      #271896 - 20/10/15 10:18 PM



I had not been out stalking since August, As the buck season is almost over, I thought that I should have a wee look about this evening, (19th.)

The weather was very fair, with a light, southerly breeze, and a temperature of 12 degrees, at 17:30 hrs.

I liked the look of a stubble field, adjacent to a mature, mixed wood, the majority of which runs south, off my ground, for about a mile and a half. Roe from this wood cross the march and feed on my ground.
So, 17:30hrs. saw me parked up in another stubble field, overlooking the park that I thought promising.

Straight away, I spotted three Roe, feeding in the stubble. Initially, I thought it was a doe and twins, but , after glassing them, It looked more like two adults and one calf. I was too far away to see if one was a buck, so i decided to get closer, and stalk in for a look-see.

I drove down to a field to the south east, grabbed my rifle etc. and set off.

The field still had bales in it, so I made my way, using the bales as cover, until I was about 150 yards from where I had last seen the three roe. Standing behind a bale, and glassing the field, I could not see any deer. They could have gone back into the wood, or be hidden in a fold in the ground, so I opted to watch and wait.

By 18:15hrs. the light was failing. I had the thought to move forward, giving me a view into the hidden ground.

Before I could move, I had a really strong feeling that there was something behind me. I very slowly turned slightly, and there was a roe, about 100 yards away, watching me!

Oh so slowly, I lifted my glasses. It was a wee buck. Resting my back agaist the bale, I moved my sticks into position, grabbed the Sako, and settled it.

The buck relaxed, and started feeding, maybe twenty yards from the edge of the wood. I had minutes of light left, so took the shot, necking the buck and dropping him on the spot.



He just about had six points.

I had him hanging in my shed by 19:20hrs. starting to cool down, and had weighed in at 18Kg.

A nice end to my buck season.


Steve.

Rut is in full swing - bagged this little fella first - shot steep uphill at 170m.



Note to myself when shooting at an angle aim lower - grazed on top (rifle is sighted at 220m so at angle of 40deg bullet hits almost 9cm above POA). Anyway - old girl was up to her job and tracked it surely - was a present for her 15th birthday.

Then I got this one - came to a call - shot just by pointing the gun at 2m.

What a super trophy, bloody big too. Your faithful dog certainly looks pretty old but seems to be having fun. Well done.

Roe Buck, uneven 8 pointer [Re: NitroX]
      #286255 - 09/08/16 11:20 PM

Morning, Narew 2016
found this roebuck on the meadows, best trophy there for many years.
probably 8 years old.

Merkel 213E, reloaded Hornady 154 grains, 16x70 over 7x65R

if you look at the roses, they show signs of age by "falling " towards the eye.

The greyed area on the nose is moving up towards the line between the eyes.

I shoot him at 30 meters, knowing that this is a mature roebuck.



regards

Another super Buck, well done. Lovely looking rifle too. I assume it is 16 Gauge over 7x65R or 7x57R ? Do you have any other photos.

Awesome trophy even to my untrained eye on such matters. How much older than this would they get?

Roe Buck 2016 [Re: granhaven]
      #286297 - 10/08/16 06:47 PM

I have known this Roe buck for the last two seasons, and I remember him higher last year.

But this year, my wife and I were out in the evening and stood looking at another buck in the long grass when he walked up just across a small canal. My wife spotted him and whispered "look left, look left", "shoot him".
I looked thru the rifle scope, at 15 meters it was not difficult to see that he was "over the hill" and "select". He then decided to attack a small bush fiercely, I took the shot and he fell on the spot in the long grass.
I am getting old, I almost cried when I picked him up and dragged him across the canal.
The evening sun, the beauty of the moment and the fine company will stay with me.

The weight was 22 kilo without the head, which is a lot for a Roe buck, and the dried trophy is 610 grams. On the right antler there is a second rose, just over the eye. probably 7 years old based on the teeth wear in the lover jaw.
Merkel 213E 16x70, 7x65R with reloaded Hornady RN 154 grains.

I shot this buck at last light, yesterday evening.








I was using my Sako 75 in 6.5x55, shooting Federal 140g SP. I took the shot off my sticks at about 150 yards.


In very nice condition, he tipped the scales at 22kg., dressed.

Merkel 323e and Roe bucks [Re: steve20]
      #332163 - 10/09/19 10:57 PM

The most recent addition to the Merkel collection is a 323E with game scenes in caliber 7x65R,7x65R, It shoots like a dream with my reloaded ammunition or factory loads for that matter.
I have used it on the driven hunts last season and for the roebucks this summer.
It is a little heavy to carry for the stalking, but the joy of shooting this compensates for the extra grams.

Quite an unusual uneven 10 pointer, 4 years old, 25 kilo


Better image, same roebuck


A maybe 9-10 years old buck also taken with the Merkel, I have known this for the last 5-6 years, Always in the same spot of dense willow.
Now it was time

Cute little beggars - kinda like our sitka/blacktail crosses on Haida Gwaii - except for the antlers, of course.
