A local farmer whose land I have shot on for years phoned me the other day and asked me if I could take care of some deer on his land. The farm is small, around 230 acres and is unenclosed.
A group of reds have taken up residency and are knocking the bejesus out of the freshly planted potato fields, they seem in no hurry to vacate.
The farmer has confirmed in writing that he authorises me to shoot the offenders.
I have never had to slot beasts out of season so any advice would be appreciated.
