Thread: Come the 1st of November

  1. #1

    Come the 1st of November

    Every year its always the same, so why I'm I so surprised that once again its exactly as previous years.................

    What I'm I talking about, well the week leading up to the 1st Nov, I went out on my land on 3 occasions each time I was fortuante enough to get a pricket and watch many more does and fawns, up to 60 -80 an outing. Now we're in November when does can be taken, I've been out 5 times and I'm seeing nothing male or female.

    Do other people notice that the deer know when the 1st kicks in? Nature in the raw is full of unanswered questions.

    Whilst doing the Hind weeks on Arran, we have been stopped on forestry tracks many times, by a procession of stags both young and old crossing (Slowly), while staring intently through the windscreen.............

    Same story with my geese, the weeks leading up to the season you have to duck (pardon the pun) so they don't break your arm as they fly past. Come day 1, FEKK*N GONE.........TW*TS !!!!!
    HOW MANY HALF TRUTHS MAKE A STORY.....ALL OF THEM.....JUST NOT THE WHOLE STORY !

    Our we talking about Fallow here? which I assume you are. Its not unusual for Fallow, they can be very nomadic. They will come back on to your land later in the year, and the rut just being over they can be a little elusive at this time for a while I think. Especially the Bucks.

    Jon,
    Devon seems to be suffering the same way, been out half a dozen times since the rut and not seen a Roe. My mate has had limited sucess with the Fallow on different ground but our usual haunts that were occupied a few weeks ago appear to have been given the Deer calender as mentioned above. However mate just remember age and treachery will defeat youth and enthusiasm!!!

    Nov 1st on my way to the high seat, see six fallow does in the wood about 60 yards ahead, up comes rifle and all I can see is mist, lens all fogged up with condensation. By the time I had cleared it their gone. Bugger. Get in High seat and about an hour later good roebuck still with wood on his head decides to have a nibble about 20 yards from the seat for 5 mins
