I have been getting some funny stories from the farmer where I shot about a wood near by having "big deer" in it and the FC shooting them. so after a bit of digging online via the fc maps and the bds deer distrabution maps i have found out that on the other side of the farm from where i shot roe damaging a willow plantation is a large wood with a confirmed sika population.
now i have never even see a live sika, but if this red deer i would bet my bottom dollar that first/last light they would be in the field that borders the wood.
my question is would they act like this?
whats the best way to try and get into them?
and to save any problems is the shot placement point of shoulder?
also why are they not coming to the small wood with the willow? (only less than 1000m away)
