    I have just been to a Deer Initiative meeting in the South-West at which Jamie Cordery was presenting. He was really good, so if you are thinking of going to this, I can highly recommend his presentation.

    What a shame it has been........

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I did a deer impact assessment day with Jamie Cordery back in April, needed it for filling out new forms for the FC grants, well worth it..

    never think you are to old to learn or know it all....!!
