Whilst mooching the internet for my thread reply on the rifled slug thread in this section I found this:
Any idea whom, when, where? No prizes but how things change. The roe deer now no longer being considered, as was in my late father's day, as "vermin" by some but now as a very marketable asset on a sporting estate and "woodland stalking" not as some sort of continental affectation or perversion but as a legitimate and saleable sporting pastime.I think I should have the support of most people who have woodlands in Scotland when I say that there is seldom any practical way of keeping roe deer under control except by shooting them with heavy shot from a shot-gun. Since the roe deer is much smaller than red deer or fallow deer, if it is sufficiently close, and if the shot-gun is fired by someone who is a reasonable shot, there is no reason why the deer should not be killed stone dead. It is very difficult in thick cover and thick undergrowth to control roe deer in any other way.
This isn't intended BTW the open a "can of worms" about shot guns on deer. I have my views and they aren't going to be published here. But other than that request not to start another controversy any ideas as to the the three Ws? Whom, when, where?
No prizes but I'll post the answer early in 2015.
