Whilst out on my permission at the weekend i saw a bachelor group of Fallow in an area where i knew they sometimes frequented (across the boundary there are loads).
As they are only visitors, and not viewed by the owners as theirs (like the roe, which they like to see around) i would be welcome to take as many as i like for the pot.
There were 6 of them. 1 big buck, 1 medium buck, and 4 prickets. I passed up the chance as i was not 100% happy with the shot presented, and i wasn’t sure which one would be best to take.
Should i get another chance, am i right in thinking that taking a pricket would be the best choice for me, and let the stalker on their home range decide when the more mature animals “have had their time”.
Any thought greatly appreciated.
Ps, could have had some nice roe bucks as well but let them go instead.
(what is happening to me! )
