I have a lovely little bit of ground on my doorstep which doesn't have a great head of deer but it keeps me busy and I really enjoy my time there.
I can see it from my house door so keep a good eye on what is happening how many deer are going about,
On Monday evening I was standing in my garage door way when I became aware of a figure making his way down the neighbouring farmers fence line , I got my bino's and watched him coming down to the boundry line with my ground and sitting in some bushes looking at the tree line on my ground where the does and young have been coming out to feed.
Nothing wrong there , I had to go and pick my son up in the village so had to leave it there but today I went for a walk along my permission to have a look and to my disgust I find a badly shot young roe doe just lying inside the tree line.
I have been trying to manage these deer and had decided to leave this years young especially the doe's to try and encourage some more bucks into the area over winter so I am a bit disgusted at what I found it was directly opposite where i saw the stalker and had been shot at an angle throught the chest exiting out of the stomach maybe thats why he just left it but it sickens me to think that some one can do a sport that I love with so much disregard to the animal and other people's shooting ground.
How many more deer has he shot and taken off my permission.
Rant over I am just a little bit pissed off.
