Big Fallow Bucks – 1st day of the Shooting Season

It’s 1st August, the first day of the fallow buck season in England, and the gloves are off. We have been watching plenty of animals on Andy Crow’s farm. It’s early to be shooting bucks but it’s time to clear them out. One but one big mature male gives the game away as his “rack” sits above the height of the wheat. But how does Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam get clear shots? He needs to improvise and he needs a bit of luck. It gives him one of his best stalks of 2014.
