I have only had stalking permission since March 2010, its a small bit of grassland with treelined hedges and the nearest wood is about 3/4 mile away. I got chatting to the neighbouring farmer who also does a little bit and he was worried because he had not seen deer for about 2-3 weeks now. I explained that it could be that the does are laid up giving birth and are not straying too far from their young and that the bucks are just keeping in the woods where the new shoots are coming out and getting ready for the rut.
What do you think? Since I started I have shot 1 buck and 3 doe?
