Chris is close to home stalking summer roe bucks and, despite a dry forecast, the weather turns for the worse with torrential, thundery showers blowing in. The following day, again early, Chris stalks close to home. After seeing does all morning he finally catches up with buck in a small block of woodland. Then Mark Ripley is out for a spot of rabbiting, putting the latest thermal kit to the test and keeping rabbit numbers down.
