A landowner i know has a couple of enclosed Red stags remaining from a small herd he kept but disposed of last year. The problem is, the land the stags are on is about to be sold and the stags have to go. The question is, what are the options ? He contacted me because he thought he could shoot them now as land will be gone before August. I don't think opening the gates and letting them walk is an option either, there are no reds in the area and a lot of domestic property nearby.
Any Idea's out there, can they be shot out of season on any form of welfare exemption ?
all help appreciated
