    Not surprised at all, few years ago at Rackenford on a pheasant shoot myself and a friend bumped into a stag with his hinds, he had attitude! he walked towards us, got within a few metres and we fired a shot over his head, it did stop him but he only casualy walked away, that is why i always carry AAA or larger when i'm up there!

    This does happen now and then. Most of us know to avoid stags during the rut, (or at any time in hard antler come to that). I have had a quad bike written off by a de-antlered stag while I was on it. But we need to keep these things in perspective. How many people get hurt or killed by bulls and other cattle yet it hardly rates a mention.

    Nevertheless very scary for the people involved and made worse by the fact that when it happens the chance of help being close by is not high.
