Anybody with any knowledge of the current numbers of Fallow deer in England will know that the numbers seem to be at a point of no return to try and keep them in check. All you seem to see on social media nowadays is pictures of people with fallow bucks shot when it probably would have been better to shot a doe or 2.
Do people think the Fallow Buck season should be drastically shortened to protect them a bit and try to encourage people to leave some bucks to reach their potential, I believe there is a real shortage in some areas of any bucks let alone master bucks.
I understand a lot of people will sell Bucks to clients for big money but this is done primarily in and around the rut so don't think this will have any effect. Perhaps a close season to mirror the Roe bucks and then another thought could the Red/Sika stags also have the same protection, in England only obviously?
