Roebuck hunting trip to Austria-Hungary
I received an invitation from my friend Franz from Vienna to hunt some Roebuck during the mating/rutting season in his hunting areas in Austria and Hungary. So we started on the 1st of August our trip to the south-east.
After meeting in Vienna, we went on the first evening to his Austrian area. We entered the stand and already saw the buck, which was our target. Franz called him with a whistle imitating the call of a doe in the rut. The buck came closer to the stand but was allover sudden accompanied by another buck challenging him, this took a few minutes than the second buck went off and we could lure him again so that I was able to pay him a shot, after a few meters he went down. The first buck was harvested.
