    Was in the Cotswolds yesterday also, and there were plenty grunting away! I saw one big old bruiser of a buck holding 43 does!!!

    Are they worth shooting given the stink?
    I would probably get the meat butchered to sell.

    Shot an old fallow buck rutting Saturday night chasing does around, but he was going well back and wasn't really holding much body weight for the time of year. however saw a very nice buck today with a group of does and 3 prickets with them happily feeding along side each other.

    I heard them grunting on Friday for the first time this year on my ground in Perthshire.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion... it's just that yours is stupid!!
