Fotograpiya| An Effective way to hunting in role deer |If you want to find a roe deer, you have to look for it where, logically, we think it can be found more comfortable. Of course, you should not think that both hot and cold, where it will be best is in the bar, because it is difficult to find it there. Speaking seriously, this little animal likes to go out to eat at sunset and is active until the early hours of the day , although in the rutting season you can see it at any time chasing the females or kicking out another smaller male from their territory.
During the central hours of the day he usually takes refuge inside the mountain and it is very difficult to see him, but if you know his wishes well and the place is not very closed you can find him lying in the shade in summer or in the sun in winter, practically unnoticed by the eye, but in spring and summer the annoying flies make them constantly shake their ears and in many occasions this movement betrays their position.
Pair of roe deer just as they discovered me, soon the male began to bark at me.
It is advisable to pay close attention to the footprints to see where the crops enter and leave and the scrapers on the stems of the plants that serve to mark their territory. If these scrapers are recent, the male will not walk very far since, being so territorial, it will not stray too far from his domain.
Another detail that I have been able to observe in these years is that the females remain in the crops eating for a long time, while the males come out, eat for a little while, hide again and after quite a while they return to eat a little and the same, again.
It is as if they ate very quickly and then retired for a short digestion and again ate again. I think that the male does not need a lot of food, while the female, who is normally pregnant or has a young, has to feed much more in order for her offspring to develop well or to nurse those that have already been born.
YOU HAVE TO WALK SLOWLY AND STOP
Hearing and smell are his most developed senses, but his vision is not bad either. In any stall it is essential to see where the air comes from and take it face to face , it is preferable to make a good detour to catch the air well than to risk entering an animal by blowing air.
It is important to wear clothing that is as mimicry as possible , so that, as soon as you stop, you go unnoticed and, also, move your hands slowly when raising the binoculars or facing the weapon.
You have to walk very slowly and stop continuously to look very well with the binoculars, since they are perfectly camouflaged and, if we get on them and they discover us, they will bark at us and there will be nothing to do. Boots can also give us away; there are models that hunting in hand you do not hear but while snooping they make noise and they are sounds that are heard a lot in the bush.
The roe deer is a small and soft animal so it does not take a large caliber to shoot it down, although sometimes we will be surprised at how far they can go after having fitted a shot in vital parts.
Gauges such as .243 Winchester or .270 Winchester are ideal with soft tips, although each maestro has his booklet and there are those who say that a .222 is more than enough and others that, in order not to puncture them, it is better to use a .30- 06. However, I think that .243 or .270 are more than enough and also have the advantage of the good grade of their projectiles at long range.
Normally it can only be fired once, making a single shot an ideal weapon for this type of hunting. In addition, the monotiro, weighs considerably less than a bolt or a semi-automatic.

THE DOCUMENTATION ALWAYS IN RULE
Whether you are the owner of the preserve or if you have been assigned a seal, you must always accompany it with an authorization specifying the seal number you carry, in addition to all the personal documentation for hunting (preserve card, insurance, license, guide and weapons permit).
Once the animal has been killed, we must know that, according to the different autonomous communities, we proceed differently, so we must know very well the Law of the Community in which we are hunting.
Thus, for example, in some modalities it must be sealed before moving it and then we can either take it whole or clean it in the bush and take the meat and the trophy, but in others it is not. In the article “Legal aspects of the roe deer” Jaime Valladolid explains the different laws of each Community.
It is also very important not to lose the matrices of the seals because it is mandatory to return them to the Administration in order to request the seals for the following year.
Finally, since we have talked about meat, I want to remember that roe deer is a real wonder and of course killing a roe deer, cutting the trophy and not taking advantage of the meat is a real shame.

It is essential to correctly put the seal before moving the deer deer
WE HAVE TO LOAD WITH THE ESSENTIAL
Roe deer stalks can be long and you should try to carry only what is necessary in your backpack . You can not miss a good knife, a flashlight, documentation and seal, binoculars, a raincoat and, if you are going to hunt in the afternoon, some last minute coat.
I also carry a small distance meter that, on several occasions, has already been quite useful to me. In some places and especially if you stay at sunset, a mosquito repellent may be essential.
In one of the preserves where I hunt, when the sun comes, they sting you in such a way that it becomes unbearable and if you are not protected they make you abandon your stalking.
If we are lucky enough to shoot and hit a roe deer, leave it for a while before going to collect it, because sometimes, if you come right away, still mortally wounded, he gets up and loses himself in the bush, greatly complicating his collection if you do not have it of a blood dog to go find him .
Of course, if we want to have good results in preserving roe deer, it is essential to arm yourself with patience and dedicate many hours to it or, if we do not have that time, hire a guide who will have already done that work and will take you directly to the wishes of the little deer.
In short, discovering roe deer hunting has been something wonderful, although I also have to say that it is making me abandon one of my favorite hobbies: trout fishing in mountain rivers because both hobbies coincide just in spring-summer and in these moments the roe deer has been placed above the trout.
What reason were my friends …!
SEE WITH LITTLE LIGHT, ESSENTIAL
It is very likely that we will have to decide whether or not to shoot at sunrise or sunset and, at both times, visibility is reduced, so I recommend a good viewfinder with a “hood” of at least 50 mm and with no less than 10 increases.
Keep in mind that if the light is good, any viewfinder will serve us but, in moments of low light, we will miss a good lens. For me, it is preferable to invest in a good rifle scope rather than a good rifle.
Ideally, both tools are the best, but if it is not enough to be able to buy a rifle and a high-end rifle scope, I consider that it is better to acquire the best rifle we can afford, even if the rifle is not very expensive.
Today, all rifles designed by well-known manufacturers shoot well.
The same can be said of binoculars. They have to be of good quality to be able to locate roe deer in any type of light.
