    bambi on ice

    Page 21 of the sun today has a nice pic of a young "fallow" trapped on ice . Don't worry guys it had been rescued and is at the vets to recover . Expected to be released back into the wild ready for culling!!

    I dont buy newspapers, but on local Meridian TV the other night they reported a deer trapped on a frozen pond which was rescued and released. Wondered if this was the same report??

    The TV presenter said it was a Fallow deer, funny looked more like a Roe doe to me

    Last winter my park red deer were regularly walking about on the ice on the lake but only one yearling fallow doe went out then stood there in the middle panicing. After trying to come up with a solution to get her back, I ended up shooting her then turning my dinghy into an icebreaker to recover her. Funny how the reds seemed to deal with it better. JC

    Roe Dear Me, that was a bad joke.......
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Yep, definately a Roe doe, i`m looking at it in the paper now at work. Funny how irritating it gets when the media get such a simple thing wrong, i mean, how difficult can it be to look up what species of deer it is.

    Anyway back to graft for me.
