A Weekend Stalking on Pentland Hill

Set off with Oliver on Friday afternoon to Pentland Hill, our stalking ground just outside Eskdalemuir, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. I took Sookie for the first time and she was brilliant. She was very keen and pretty much nose to the ground the whole time. She got me onto two Roe that were deep in the trees with a perfect point but they were well off before I could do anything. As it was getting dark Oliver shot a lovely Roe Buck, on the top boundary, he dragged it down to near the road but then left it in the trees to give Sookie something to look for. It was an excellent and very quick result. As soon as Sookie was sent back she headed directly to the buck and found it in minutes.

The above pictures were taken with a Canon G9, I have never really thought of my iPhone as a camera but given there was a certain amount of hanging around I decided to take a picture with my phone. The picture below has had a wee bit of Photoshop but the results are OK.
