Default Second German Roe Buck

I had another successful hunt. The buck arrived about 5 minutes after I sat in the hunter's seat. It was about 0600, so it was still kind of dark in the woods. I wanted to get a Mouflon (mountain sheep), but they never showed up. I was hunting near Kusel, which is on the way to Baumholder. Baumholder is an Army post. The historic 1st armor division was stationed there until very recently. The trophy skull is from my last hunt. I have shot 1 doe and 2 buck at this revier in the last couple of months. Both bucks are two years old. Twice I was the only successful hunter. The revier owner joked he will not invite me anymore. Anyways, my freezer is full again. Some of the pics are from my Sony Action Camera I have strapped to my big noggin. I wanted to download video to youtube, but it would take 615 minutes, so I changed my mind.

First Roe Buck shot on the this revier and processing area:

Jager,

Congrats on the hunt. You advised these were about two years old. What is their weight and do they get bigger or stay in the same range regarding size. Do you have any pictures of the mountain sheep you were trying to find?

Both the bucks were 15 kilos (33 pounds ) without head/guts/organs. The doe was 13 (29.66 pounds) kilos. The bucks can get a little bigger, but they are no larger then a big dog. In the past I see the average of 13-15 kilos for bucks and around 12/13 for doe.



Here are more pics from a hike and a winter drive hunt. It has Roe, boar, fox and a fallow deer (large doe in front of the other game). I shot a fox and deer. http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f50/rehwild-roe-deer-93143/

Jager,

Thanks for the information! The Mountain Sheep Rams would be a prize!

There is underbrush in certain areas. Hunters also work on the revier to make the hunt easier. I scout areas before hunting. I have had to track wounded boar (from another hunter) in the middle of the night in heavy brush. I can track anything with two and four legs. A skill we learned in our year of hunting school. Still, night tracking is not fun and very dangerous. Boar do charge you at night. We also hunt on treacherous large hills and small mountains. Still, I have HK USP .40 and my Mossberg 590 Mariner with slugs in these situations. Yes, we keep bullets in the chambers of our guns! (referring to another thread) The fourth picture is German underbrush.

Oh, no drinking when handling firearms. Later....hell ya!

1 So how does the hunting work there ?
Is it a hunting lease ?
2 Or is it public land you that you can go any where you want ?
3do you belong to a rod and gun club and they tell you where to hunt ?
