When do you use a thermal spotter and when do you not? Tom Davies from Dartmoor Deer Services finds his old XQ50 invaluable when he is culling fallow bucks. However, there are times when it aint as good as a pair of eyes, as Ollie Williams shows him.
In this film, Tom is pulling on his stalking boots for the first time in months. He stood on a rusty nail and the infection means he has lost a toe. But that’s not stopping the deer ravaging local wheat and corn crops. He has asked Ollie Williams from neighbouring Cornwall to come and see if they can reduce numbers.
Ollie is using a Browning X-Bolt. Click here for the Browning website
