I've been given two boxes of 'Stalking Magazines' by the Son-in-Law of my late boss, a great hunting, shooting, fishing and stalking character (he ran 'my' little shoot for 35 years+!)
They make excellent reading and date from about 1988-1993. In many of them there's quite a lot of (understandable!) outrage about packs of 'Roe Hounds' being established.
I was a wee nipper in 1990ish and so have never heard of this. Was it widely practiced? What hounds were used? Was it 'banned' or did it just fizzle out? Were the roe caught by the hounds or held at bay like staghounds do?
Sounds like a fairly unpleasant (and probably quite inefficient!) way to tackle my favourite deer. I'd be grateful for any information you chaps can provide.
