    Wish I could say the same thing about this area.
    Roe seem to be in very short supply. It is obvious that they have been here at some time in the past but with so many stalkers around now they don't seem to last long.
    I put it down to the fact that Roe are pretty stupid when it comes to visibility. They also come out at shootable times and are often pretty predictable with their habits and range.
    Muntjac range increases quickly due to their size, love of tight cover and breeding rate.
    Fallow just go nocturnal if under pressure.
    I'll see one here one day, I might just be too old to stalk it.
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Roe were getting established in NE Wales about 10 years ago but not only do they come out at shootable times, they also live in places where lampers operate and I think the temptation would be too much for some. Whatever the reason they seem to have disappeared.
