I have just been reading an article in aprils edition of sporting rifle.
The article was a about not stalking in the month of march for roe doe, and the fact that many think we should not be shooting them in this month as they are very active at this time of year as most will be so close to dropping this years young. And as winter is almost over by then that they will also be very hungry and on the move more looking for food.
It suggests that the traditional month off in march was essential to predictable deer management, allowing one to take stock and undertake the annual census.
Could allowing this to carry on have irreversible effect on future roe numbers.
really I just wonted to no what other people thoughts are on this for me after reading the article I will not be shooting roe doe in the month of march.
