    Saw a buck chasing yesterday, mid day, nice wet muggy thundery day, perfect weather for a buck this time of year. Would imagine a few bucks got nailed this morning

    Bucks are wih yearling does here close bu no chasing seen yet.
    All mature does I've seen are with their followers.
    Will start to cut the rape next week will probably kick off then.

    Also started in Berkshire, as per my write up in the Articles section. I also nearly witnessed a deer collission last night as a doe, closely followed by a youngish buck, sprinted across the A4 in front of a motorbike and a car. It was close and the biker must have looked like this !

    In Lancashire; seen 2 bucks (shot one old six pointer) both with does this week but they weren't really showing much interest yet. The call didn't have the desired effect either. If this thundery warm weather carries on I reckon they'll be active next week.

    may be a little early for the midlands for it really to be kicking off, might be a few about just starting to stir but not many from what i can see
    where abouts in the midlands are you??
