A question about the best ways of getting Fallow deer to favour a particular area. I have a photography project planned for this spring and want to get some nice Fallow shots, in woodland, with nice back lighting. I have access to a wood land that regularly has sizable groups of deer (70+) around it. There is a track, accessible by 4x4, that does a loop around the woodland, that means that I can be in the north east / east side, concealed in a vehicle with the evening sun dipping in front of me and the wind likely to be in my face. The woodland is part of a keepered pheasant shoot, so there are often vehicles driving through it and stopping. So itís all worked out, but with one obvious piece missing, how to get the beasts where I want them!
Iíve read about using salt licks, peanut butter etc etc, but was wondering if any of you have any tips for me? I donít want to bait the area as such, as I think the Keeper would have something to say about me attracting animals off of neighbouring land, I would just like to set up an area that they favoured Ė any ideas?
