Quick question for the more experienced roe stalkers please.
I have been out spying around a fair bit recently and there are consistently two groups or roe, mixed sex on average 6 or 7 of them, sometimes more.
They lay in up in very convenient locations stalking wise, not too difficult to get into and very safe locations.
The common factor between the groups is there is a much larger buck in each group holding court.
When I have spooked them it this buck who gets up first and gives the signal for the rest to go.
The question is, do I preserve these larger bucks as they hold these groups, or is it OK to take them?
Or would I be better off taking the occasional smaller buck while the group remains intact?
My concern is if the larger buck is taken the group dynamic may change and they may disperse, most likely into the adjoining estate.
