On a recent visit to some of my stalking in Glenluce , there seemed to be a severe lack of deer on the ground ! . The land runs adjacent to a large mature forest with several small pockets of woodland amongst . Ground conditions as we all know are terrible nation wide . Top of the wellies stalking !!!! On a four day trip I saw one roe doe a very nice for too with alot of fat stored around the kidneys . First deer taken for the new 6.5/47 lapua !!!.
Any way back to the point usually in late December the land is wick with deer both roe and red !!! As the many hundred cattle are in there winter housing the deer have all the much needed lush grass to them selves but nothing ?.
I have 3 trail cameras set up in variousness hot spots but in the previouse 2 weeks only a doe and a young spiker and a fox which usually there would be a dozen or so foxes double numbers of roe and many a group of red . Any body else found this ????
