Well the poaching around here has gotten so bad that its even made headlines in the Shooting Times.
In the last fortnight I have heard of 2 lots of deer being hung up in trees for collection later and one of my best permissions had a fallow does head just tossed into a fishing pond (not by me). The police are trying but only on a station by station basis so you only have to travel about 15 miles before you are "off patch" and depending on different officers and attitudes.
They need to catch the *******s who are buying the venison first and then they might make headway.
20 years ago fallow were something of a rarity around here very soon they will be again.
