I have a high seat recently set up in a spinney next to a little river, no public access or footpath nearby, never seen any lost dog-walkers, no other people have shooting permission on this piece of land.
I found that somebody must have visited the location as I found a leek tied to a piece of string hanging from a branch, approx. 2 feet above the ground, within a few yards from a salt lick I established within range of the high seat.
Two possible hints:
1. There is a private carp fishing lake nearby (some 300 Yards) so maybe the location gets visited by uninvited people from Eastern European countries who really like to eat carp and practice some kind of Pagen ritual...?
2. I have never spotted any deer yet in the spinney, despite fraying/browsing signs, and a known population of Roe and Muntjac on the surrounding farms. Will the leek have scared them off?
Any ideas? (And I welcome all joking replies as well)
