Thread: dead red deer AT MARTINDALE ( THE NAB )

  1. #1

    Angry dead red deer AT MARTINDALE ( THE NAB )

    hi i took a walk with the wife and kids up to martindale deer park last sunday / i couldnt believe how many reds were lying around the hills dead (3 stags 9 hind ) i can only think it must have been the snow that killed them but as an estate that manages it ( dalmain ) you would think they would remove them from public veiw / NOT GOOD FOR OUR SPORT

    I no its been aweful up around Shap etc.. but never heard of this before, I no of couple farmers pulling dead sheep from everywhere.
    It was reported on Cumbria FM that a prison in north Cumbria allowed 4 prisoners out for the day helpings farmers to get food to the sheep etc... which I though was a good i dear.

    ​Not good for our sport in what way ? the sad loss of 12 deer due to snow, or the fact they where left in situ public view ?

    get the land owner, local stalker informed. There's a chance it's got a bullet in it. Stags don't just fall over and die like that.

    Sometimes it's not that obvious where a bullet has entered the body and stayed in the body.
