About a week ago i was out at first light, i parked my truck off the road in a field.
I was waiting by my favourite tree well before light, as it started to get light i heard a van driving very slowly along the lane, either side of this lane are the fields i am permitted to shoot over, only it's side lights were on, then as i thought, it slowed to a stop in a gateway and although i was 300 yards away i could make out he was glassing the fields, he stayed there for a couple of minutes and moved on, i did not move for fear of being shot!
So i went out again this morning, i noticed some roe down the bottom of the field by the woods, i had glassed them from the road, just like he did, i pulled into another gateway and started to stalk the deer, i had gone about 100 yards and was so annoyed to find the remainders of roe deer gralloch, i reckon it had been there about 48 hours, by the laws of probability it was shot by the same guy, even if it wasn't it's still a crazy irresponsible thing to do.
So, this site has 15,000 members, just in case the individual is on this site, you have been rumbled, i now know your van, i am on the lookout as is the farmer.
I am not going into exact locations suffice to say it was around 5 miles west of Crediton.
That aside, this is such a dangerous practice, imagine shooting towards the deer and i am to the rear, it is not worth the risk, you could kill someone.
