inspired by the thread on head shooting a trophy i thought i would start one on management, miss management or just shooting in general.
i shoot a few bits of ground for muntjac and on the whole have a shoot on sight policy. i have shot muntjac for approx 5 years stalking on average 3 or 4 times a month so some expierience but by no means an expert.
It seems to me that other people feel that the shoot on sight policy is wrong and that a more measured approach gives a more effective population control strategy or damage limitation strategy etc.
The only muntjac specific book that i'm aware of basically proposes a shoot on sight policy. people who i know through stalking that shoot munties, as far as i'm aware, shoot on sight. what strategies and rationales do other people use in the management (through shooting) of munties
