    out this morning saw 2 bucks (not together) one not doing anything but browsing the other a big buck looked like he was questing way out in a wheat field sniffing alot and then walking a few yards then sniffing the air again.

    Saw a big un chasing a little un off his patch last thursday morning. Its a little early yet in my experience. Proabably another fortnight at least before the girls start to get interested. Generally in South Yorks it seems to be early August.

    Out stalking last Saturday morning there was a small 6-pointer chasing away a little button buck, but I've not seen any real evidence of the rut.

    I was out again last night. Lots of roe in one field, but only one buck:
