Thread: Red hind

  1. #1

    Smile Red hind

    I was asked today by the farmer to shoot a red hind that was chasing his sheep that had recently had lambs, scattering them everywhere. With no reds in the area this must of escaped from a deer farm. No tags could be seen.
    I declined the farmers offer as was not sure of the legality of shooting the hind out of season.
    Could anyone tell me the law on this.

    As a sheep farmer I would have shot it, as I would a dog under similar circumstances.

    Perfectly legal as long as you comply with section 7 of the Deer Act.
