Having just got myself a place on a syndicate near my home I am keen to find the answer to a number of questions.
1. How does the weather affect deer movement/ activity? Is it worth going out if it is windy and/or wet. Obviously I am as keen as mustard to go out all the time and learn, but dont want to waste time when there is clearly no hope of a sighting.
2. Part of the lease is FC plantations and there are signs up telling all and sundry that they are free to roam about and enjoy the woodland as long as they dont nick machinery or damage trees etc. How can I deal with this reasonably without upsetting horse riders and dog walkers at some point?
3. If I want to get to a high seat before first light would it be okay to use a small torch or is this going to spook deer? I dont want to get lost either , it is 1000 acres , even though I have checked out most things during the day, obviously.
4. Some joker seems to be pushing over one high seat in particular. Is it best to just get it shifted? Should it be hidden away a bit more? This is in the FC ''playground'' by the way.
Any help invaluable, thanks in advance.
