Friday night in my local, chatting to two friends who have a Goat farm two villages over from us & asked them if they had a bonfire on the go still as I knew they had cleared some trees & bushes last week & we were cutting down our Lylandii this weekend so wanted to shift the trunks & debris pronto.
No problem they said so Saturday after dumping 5 trailer loads on the bonfire & having a coffee or two with them they mentioned they wanted me to sit out for a Fox that had taken one of their geese & a couple of ducks in the last few weeks.
No problem I said & then the conversation turned to Deer & they said we are overrun at the moment do you think you can help with them as well! Didn't think they had that many up there as its quite open ground/grass fields with no wooded areas to speak of for a mile or so.
After biting their arm off at the shoulder I reluctantly agreed
So I've got 250 acres of stalking subject to police confirmation that the land is cleared for centerfire rifle which we think historically it is.
