I have an out of the way part of my permission that doesnt get much action and I dont go up there too often.
In the last few days I have been snooping up there to see whats what and on each occasion i have rustled my way up through the crop to the corner of the field and the same young Roe buck has hopped out of the hedge line no more than 50m away had a look at me and then jumped back in again. He looks to be a yearling and I havent seen any does in that are before.
Is it possible that he is young and stupid and hopes the noise is a Doe given that we are definately in rut at the moment (we being the roe not me!)?
