Yesterday I read with interest that according to the BBC we were entering a period of significant deer RTA's according to them due to the Rut being on. There also seems to be a very large proportion of RTA's within the M25 (? roe/munties but not in rut).
Some comment from the DI saying with a deer population of 2 million in this country, 30k needed to be culled each year.
Not knowing the figures I expect more than 30k roe are legally shot each year. Also sweeping statement that land owner can get a gun and just go out and shoot deer.
Cannot believe such rubbish is being continually broadcst by the BBC, why arn't the many field sport associations making some meaningfull input?
I suspect that lots more RTA's with roe due to the changing dayloght and all the maize now being cut so no cover and they are all on the move.
