Deer hunting in Scotland

Mt friend, photographer Jon Blumb, often goes to Scotland to hunt deer and fish for salmon.

Guided by head game keeper Bruce Cooper on Glenprosen Estate near Kirriemuir in The County of Angus, Jon recently bagged this beautiful 6+ point roebuck. Jon downed the buck at 160 yards with Cooper’s .25/06 Sauer rifle.They had been out since sunrise (4:30 AM ) and Jon shot the buck at 7:30 AM.

Jon sent me a photo of himself wearing kilts but his legs are almost as ugly as mine so I did not include it in this post.
