Roy is out in the New Forest during the sika deer rut. The stags have been whistling and clashing antlers in the deer rutting season, and he uses his best deer rut call skills to create the necessary deer rutting noise to call them in. Plus he has a call for a muntjac, and he gets to use that, too. He is using a rifle mounted with a Leica scope and an Aimpoint red dot Acro. Find out how useful that is, too, and see how he gets on.
