Hungary , 1st buck
The next day we continued our trip to the Hungarian area close to the Austrian/Slovakian border.
At the hunting lodge we were welcomed by Piroschka, who should take care of us in the coming days in terms of cooking and so on. I called the professional hunter, Ferrie, who is taking care of the hunting area and agreed on a first outing in the evening, which was not successful. On the next day we saw a lot of wild boar and red deer but no roe buck to fit in our targeted scheme.
On Thursday morning we went out again at 4:30 and it was pouring down with rain. We went to the same stand as the day before. After waiting half an hour we saw a buck entering the road in the forest together with a doe. Ferrie said, this is our buck. The two were playing around and finally mated. After that, the buck disappeared into the bush. Ferrie called him with the whistle, he jumped out again and I shot him, he was down immediately.
