    Muntjac in South Dorset

    Has anyone shot a Muntjac in southern Dorset? There seems to be a lot of unsubstantiated sightings of the little furry blighters but I don't actually konw anyone who has one in their larder.

    Hi Zazzydog,

    There are good numbers just after Ringwood which is only 10 miles from Poole..

    Any further South and youd be in a canoe..

    Ive seen two on Arne which quite possibly were released and over to Lulworth i hear there are some..

    I've also heard there are some at Lulworth but I don't think they have reached a chiller yet.

    Terry thats interesting What sex were they?
    Ive shot on Arne for the last 3 yrs and have not seen any ,,
    They must have moved on Sadly,
    I will check with the Deer Manager and RSPB and see if they know Anything seen plenty of Sika And Fox

    Hi Guys,

    Before this turns silly and like the big cat....

    Ive been on Arne for the last 30 years Viking850.. And it was a very generous RSPB fella that signed off 1 of my level 2 requirements.. Didnt charge a penny for any outings,deer shot or filling out my folder..

    I was hoping to do the deer count this year but didnt..

    I have no idea on sex as the busted Sika went into the forestry block and the Muntjac were out like scolded cats..

    Arne is huge and divided by private farms/landowners.. depending on what access you have i guess would largely depend on how much you would see... obvious.. if your shooting one small bit of land (and im not saying you are) your overall picture might not be the same..

    Zazzydog.. i dont shoot Lulworth and can only pass on what ive been told..

    Why on earth would i want to dispute or discredit the claim from credible people just because i dont know someone personally with one hanging in their chiller... does that mean you want to call them liars..

    My Appolagies i was absolutly not trying to discredit your observations in anyway whatsoever ,that was not my intentions ,I was merely interested in your observations,
    I know from past experience that they have a tendency to spread and breed like rabbits if there are both sexes in the area

    would be Good to have anouther quarry to stalk on Arne ,

    No Lier's from my point of view, Just interested that's all

    Zzazydog,

    I have spent a bit of time down that way and heard of these mythical sightings of muntys and even thought that I have seen them myself only to realise just prior to pulling the trigger that they were black and white.

    You would be supprized at dusk how much the siloutte of a bradge reasembles a munty

    I too have heard of boar in that area the closest I have seen was some feral potbelly pigs in a place called highwood my mate smudge reaconed they tasted good
