  5. Yes We Hunt - Hunter's Path

    I was sent a link to the Yes We Hunt European Hunting website. They advertise annual membership for €100 to include a quarterly magazine which appears almost like a hardcovered book from the photograph. Has anyone subscribed? Is it informative or just a bunch of 'me with a dead buck' type...

  8. Trail Camera Problem

    I set a camera out for about a month and while the first set of daytime photos were normal, more recent photos on the memory card showed a pink colour cast. As can be seen, after this happened the night time photos are perfectly normal. I have tested the camera since with a different card and...

  10. Rifle Cleaning

    Following Bambislayer's thread, I'm I the only one that has never cleaned my rifle! I have two, one for seven years, one for 18 years. I shoot between 100-150 deer a year. I have never had to rezero. I check the rifle on a new batch of ammo or an unexpected miss/wounding, but have never had to...
  11. Pan Feeder for Deer

    I have kept tame muntjac in a three quarter acre pen for the last number of years. They have done well but need regular supplimentary feeding every couple of days with a mixture of concentrates mainly consisting of calf pellets. A great deal of the food is lost to rats, and it has become a bit...

    What is the swelling to the right of the gralloch in this photo, from an old non pregnant sika hind shot yesterday? More photos to follow.
  14. Mexican Stand Off

    This hind spent 40 minutes this evening staring at me, with me staring at her until dusk. She moved no more than her head. I was initially waiting for her to move off the skyline for a shot or over the top for me to go after her. Her calf to the right was prancing around behind her all the time...
  15. Hunter Wellies

    Having just puntured my third pair of Hunter Wellingtons in the past year, can anybody recommend a pair of boots that have similar comfort but with a rubber strength that is at least stronger than a plastic bag! Many thanks Dama
  16. My 22 year old has just had a baby!

    Talk about an unwanted pregnancy! The wife was out feeding the deer this afternoon to find our pet 22 year old red hind, had two little feet sticking out her back end. She pulled a hind calf out and it started suckling. This hind has had a calf every year except last year and has practically no...
  17. Skewbald red stag

    Has anybody seen anything like this in a red deer before? We met him roaring away this weekend. Never been seen before. Apparently a flecked hind was shot in the area five years ago. I know there are reports of this in roe. Is it genetic, are they born this way (if so I would be surprised if it...

  19. We all had to learn once..........

    I know deer are good swimmers but apparently it doesn't come as naturally to some as others! This guy was spotted last week but will hopefully have cast antlers by now.
  20. God loves drunk people too

    A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push. "Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the morning!" He slams the door and returns to bed...
