Thread: Advice required

    Advice required

    A landowner i know has a couple of enclosed Red stags remaining from a small herd he kept but disposed of last year. The problem is, the land the stags are on is about to be sold and the stags have to go. The question is, what are the options ? He contacted me because he thought he could shoot them now as land will be gone before August. I don't think opening the gates and letting them walk is an option either, there are no reds in the area and a lot of domestic property nearby.
    Any Idea's out there, can they be shot out of season on any form of welfare exemption ?

    all help appreciated

    They aren't wild deer - they can be shot at anytime. If you aren't geared up for handling red carcases make sure, at this time of year, you have a game dealer arranged to take them in good time.

    They are wild for all intents unless you have a Herd number for them.

    Drop me a PM a friend of mine is after a couple of fresh blood stags.

    We can move them etc as we already have all Licences etc in place and probably have more collective experience in capture and handling of wild deer than anyone else in the UK

    I believe you can shoot them as they are not wild animals but farmed in an enclosed area !

    You cannot shoot them , they are red deer and out of season simple as that

    Just out of pure interest you state you have "more collective experience in capture and handling of wild deer than anyone in UK" so does that mean you capture wild deer and handle them? What do you do with them? Sell them to who? Or does it mean you handle park deer ?

    Do you work with some of the pioneers of deer supply, handling and transport such as Fred Marshall, John Fletcher, Houghton Estates, Gunton etc?? who to my knowledge and many others are the most probable and experienced deer suppliers, live capture specilists and handlers in UK.

    Just a question and not meant in any arquementive or abusive way.
