    d) use an electrical or other instrument or appliance (including recording apparatus) emitting or imitating birdcalls or the calls of wild mammals for the purpose of hunting a protected wild bird or a protected wild animal which is a mammal.

    is a deer a protected mammal ?

    Your time enough with the rutt going by my few years of stalking 10 to 24 of next month you will be in the full swing some areas will be early and some late it's a magic time get out and enjoy it . I, never to worried about shooting a rutting stag I enjoy the pushing and shoving and a bit of grunting along with the mewing of them
