Although I have a good deal of experience in stalking woodland roe I have never really encoutered roe that mainly are resident on moorland. I have taken on some ground which extends to approx 1700 acres. Roughly 600 acres are woodland blocks with good stalking rides but the remaining ground is almost flat moorland. There is a good population of roe and it would appear that they are a mixture of woodland resident and moor resident with the moor deer venturing into the woodland for shelter when required. What I have noticed is that the moor resident deer would appear to be far more wary of their surroundings and will feed where they have advantage of being able to see greater distance. Slightest movement detected and they are off. Yesterday morning I glassed two groups of three moor deer and with the wind very much in my favour I tried to stalk them out onto the moor but they magically disappeared. They are doing no harm out on the moor but it certainly is a new challenge to me.
I would suspect that stalking them would be very much like stalking hill reds but as the ground is basically flat there just is not much cover.
Anybody have experience of these elusive deer.
