    I heard it was a trick used by some doing their DSC2 I dont know how much truths in in though
    Things have changed a bit they used to feed them mars bars and crisps but it all stopped the deer complained as they prefered milky ways and yorky bars

    Sndwiches are better but cut the crust of, no top wallys.

    I know that park deer like bread but have never heard anyone saying anything about wild deer seeking out bread, hope to learn someting from anyone who has any knowledge of this!.

    Hi,
    I know on the way to Loch Ba flyFishing, going up passed Rannoch Moor at the beginning of Glen Coe,

    There's a small snack bar caravan which we stop at just to watch the guy feed the Red Deer[wild] loaf's of bread and roll's no butter

    First time i saw this year's ago, i could not get away with the speed the herd would come into eat the bread, [Stags,Hind's&Calf's]
    and the distance was approx 10yards.
    Your a long time dead, enjoy every day like it's your last!!!

    A friend owns a deer-park containing Fallow.
    Jimmy, the retired estate gamekeeper lives beside the park and the Fallow old and young take bread out of his hand from over the fence.
    He always has a pocket full of peanuts which attracts Chaffinches, Blue Tits and Great Tits.

    Bunkum !
    I breed Budgerigars and Parrakeets and give them small quantities of Hovis seeded bread each day extra to their normal diet of hard seeds.
    Below, Jimmy at it again !
