    Usually about the second week in September for me, possibly an odd one before that.

    Can't comment on reds, but fallow are 2 weeks behind last year. They were all clean in my ground this week last year, but are still in full velvet (some still rubbery at the tips) this year.

    Al the Reds on the ground I'm on / on route to the ground I'm on are still in velvet. I haven't seen one clean / in rags from hundreds. Cheers

    Not sure about Reds but spotted five big wild fallow bucks clean last week in fact they were the biggest wild fallow bucks I've ever seen around me.

    Thanks for the replies! I take it the sika clean at the same time? Or are they slightly earlier? Felt very autumnal at the weekend and the last 2 days have been the best days of summer so far!
