hello all, this may sound like the most stupid question in the world but , i dont know.
On one of the farms i shoot over the land owner (who knows i do a little bit of stalking)has said he would like to get some deer onto his land, his ground is very animal/wildlife friendly
the farm is 2500 acres of fantastic deer friendly land plenty of crops loads of cover lots of woods a real nice bit of ground which is also surrounded by land that is the same. The problem is it is in S Wales and there has not been any deer there since the stone age.
the land would be best suited for Roe and Muntjac (i know there would be probs with munties)and could cope with some fallow, how do i go about if possible to get roe deer for the land.
Con-as with most slightly excentric million heirs he is tight as a drum skin, but might part with some cash. i know i could not legally release Muntjac on land .
Pro's - land is outstanding for deer , land owner has no issue with crop damage (wants to see deer) and would even plant crops make it extra deer friendly, transport to collect deer from anywhere not an issue , deer not to be shot
i have contacted BDS and asked the same question but was just shouted at by snotty nosed woman.
what i wondered was do deer get released onto new land from deer santuaries etc, and does any body know about this subject.
this is not just a back handed way of me getting deer onto land i already shoot but a genuine question , i dont think that if deer did get released they would ever get to over population numbers on the land as they would spread onto the surrounding land.
i look forward to any replies........................neil
