I am spending the weekend on my girlfriend's farm on the East Sussex/Kent border and went out for a stalk last night. There is no shortage of deer but the only problem was that they were nearly all does, thus my question. I saw at least 20 deer last night but the only buck was a youngster from this year and he looked too cute to shoot! The neighbour's keepers will be pleased though as I did shoot a big dog fox.....
I know that in Scotland some estates are referred to as being hind or stag forests can that happen with fallow? Whilst I realise that fallow can and do move large distances but these are certainly resident as I am the only person who shoots on the farm and they are only ever disturbed by me. Clearly bucks must be about as there are young but do they drop in during the rut and move away??
I look forward to hearing some views.
