Heading home last night at dusk after usual rounds, I spotted a group of 6 reds, hinds calves and yearlings in a newly planted rape field on the main road.
I do not have permission to stalk there, however, the owner had made an informal approach to see if I would "keep and eye on it". This patch is 6 large fields and a bit of hill grazing with 4 blocks of woodland.
As it is a legal requirement and borders the main road, I was keen to do things right. I indicated I was willing but would prefer written consent.
I arrived home and what was waiting for me, express permission for the very bit of ground I had so coveted!!
Now lets see if that spiker is back out tonight......
