Been staying up near Loch Ness and I saw a few dead deer on the roads that had been hit by motor vehicles. What are the legalities of harvesting these victims in Scotland? Is it an offence to pick one up an use the meat?
I've been stopped and had my van searched a few times by the Police up there when I've been heading north to catch an early morning ferry. I think they suspected poaching. I guess having a deer carcass on board might take some explaining?
