evening all ,
in a nut shell do red deer eat oil seed rape ?
ive just got in from my permission , and yesterday where i had barley stubble i now have freshly drilled rape .
and just over the boundary there is a herd of 30-40 reds , a mix of hinds calfs and small spikers and if last year is any thing to go by , from what i saw last year the herds size will increase by another 50 - 60 animals !
a horrible problem to have some might think , but i also the to think of my land owner and his crops !
by the look of it their gearing up for the rut !
am information would be greatly appreciated .
