Thread: Any Sign of this years Fallow Rut

    Any Sign of this years Fallow Rut

    Been away on holiday to the highlands for the last week, a bit of salmon fishing, red stag stalking and a days rough shooting. Brilliant time had by all. As I am in a stalking syndicate where the woods are situated between Hereford & Ledbury, I would like to ask has anyone in this area seen or heard anything to suggest the start of this years fallow rut. As I am based in Wales, about one and a half hours drive away from this ground, any replies would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Gaz

    Not really kicked off on my our ground (Hereford) yet, not far off seen a few scrapes and a lot of buck activity.

    Watched four mature bucks on Saturday together, two of them play fighting. Watched another buck showing aggression towards a pricket but no groaning.

    Cheers Wayne

    We've got wallows and lots of activity, but no noises yet. The young males have appeared on my patch which means the old boys are starting to play rough.

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    Hi Gaz,
    We have been leaving our bucks alone the last three years and its paying off know, we've got a lot of young to middle age bucks showing another few years they should be some fine animals nice to see them around.

    I'll be out with the video camera over the next few weeks and the rifle for a few prickets and maybe if I'm lucky an old buck I'm after. Have fun

    A few scrapes about the week before last, and saw a few prickets chased out the wood by a nice looking buck. My mate went up to the ground weekend just gone, and saw a couple of good bucks scrapping.

    Could do with the temp. to drop a few degrees, but not too far away now.
