    I wouldn't have said that was poaching evidence? Looks more like the remains of some home butchery by someone that doesn't have a responsible means to dump the waste. Even took the time to cut the antlers off! All you would find from a poached deer is likely to be the gralloch and maybe a head with a .22LR hole in it! Was there any indication as to where it had been shot - broken ribs etc??

    Was it even shot? I've heard that some of the riff-raff have been leaving all sorts of stuff about with the aim of getting the blame put on a certain local family. There are even stories floating around that dogged deer have been left in the roads around Purbeck, still alive, with their legs broken.

    Unlikely, as stated by Monkey Spanker above. If I were a poacher, I would try to dispose the remains in a more secluded area and not a layby. Looks like the work of a lazy and inconsiderate imbecile.

    Could be somebody salvaging a bit of road kill even !

    I agree that, from my limited knowledge, poaching is a quick gralloch, maybe lower limbs and head off and go. No stacking, putting, placing. Certainly not this neat stack of parts that will have taken someone a few minutes to do.

    Tend to agree with Monkey Spanker. IMO Probably shot & home butchered by a FAC holder fairly close to where the remains were found. Inconsiderate dumping location, it should have buried at the least.

    It wasn't stacked I placed the lower limbs in that position and regardless poached or not this is totally disgusting behaviour and such people should not have a firearms and obviously have no respect for the countryside or the wildlife within it
    I'm sure all will agree with that

    These threads where presumptions are made are great

    We have experienced an unusual 'variation on a theme' in the Fens this winter. Chinese Water Deer, Muntjac and Roe have been poached using centre-fire firearms. They have been gralloched, heads removed and properly skinned on site. We suspect that the criminals may be dismembering the carcass for concealment and to frustrate identification, if stopped by the police?
    We have also had the normal lamp and lurcher brigade, who are much less subtle.
    A pessimist is an optimist with experience.
