    The Telegraph-Deer Stalking Article

    Following terriers post yesterday re the Telegraphs article on deer stalking, here's a link to the piece

    Deer stalking: the solution to a problem? - Telegraph

    Life should be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving skidding in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!

    For an article written by someone obviously tending towards the tree hugging fraternity it could have been far worse. At least the man had the guts to go and see and then think about how the meat that he buys from the butchers got there by comparison.

    It's a bit anthropomorphic and here are obvious inaccuracies that we are well aware of, the "fact" that 50% of deer need to be shot each year, that fallow whilst technically non native, have been here for at least 1,000 years, not introduced in the late 19th century as suggested, but I don't think it did deer stalking any great harm.

    My only other comment is that I would have expected a higher standard of English in the Telegraph.

    Agree, could have ben a lot worse.

    My spelling however, is just as bad!! "been" not "ben".
