Have you seen Telegraph page 6 photo of the Roe Deer in Richmond Park. All I can see is bloody Fallow. You can see how Big BO gets away with his crap on TV.
This is a similar thread to the one I posted about BASC magazine putting a picture of a Roe Doe in an article and calling it a Red hind. Its amazing how stupid the media is. If they can't get this right then there is no chance that important news will be accurate!
There was a pic in Sporting Rifle - I think it was back in January this year - of a fallow that I'd have sworn was a sika. Now if they can't get it right .......
I used to watch countryfile religiously but can`t stand the bloody programme now. A bit too namby pamby and politically correct for my liking.
Anyway they have on there a video diary which people send in and one day someone had done some filming of deer in a woodland. This guy was sat in a hide and said words to the effect, "Oh, and there is a roe deer", when in fact it was a fallow doe.
It never ceases to amaze and annoy me the lack of knowledge of "SO CALLED" professional people on the Tele.
Didn`t that big fat oaf Bill Oddie once say that roe deer were protected when they were filming them in that Glasgow cemetery.
P.S. Kate humbles nice though.
I`m always in rut malc.
You can`t help but fancy her though can you?
KATE HUMBLE PHOOOOAAAARRRR
I have an 8 year old daughter and ever since she has been going to school i have made sure that when for e.g she has been shooting with me or when i have come back with deer she has wrote about it in her books at school. I know the teachers don`t like it when she mentions that she went stalking with me, but i want her to feel proud about learning countryside things and not be part of the PC brigade.
She can now teach them a thing or two.
Same ere, MERRY CHRISTMAS MALC, AND EVERYONE ELSE.
HAVE A GOODAN.
Oh yes ....

Does that make them all evil? I wrote a letter to the head and the chair of governors about it and got an appology which means it won't happen again. (i am the the chair of governors now so it definatey won't!) When we hear about this at schools etc we should kick up about it.
