Thread: How far south

    How far south

    If it is your wife asking the answer is "not at all dear"!

    However, back to the point does anyone have any knowledge of how far south towards the central belt of Scotland red deer have spread?

    The reason I ask is I have some land along the line of the Ochils/Lomond hills. Last year I saw one set of fresh red deer slots in a large area of block forestry. I know for a fact that at the west end of the Ochils towards Dunblane/Sheriffmuir there are reds however, this is towards the eastern end of the range

    This year after a recent visit I saw some more, larger less fresh, but unmistakably red deer slots.

    Just wondering...........

    hi,

    my dad shot a red stag not that long ago in the borders, been the only one he has ever saw down here and discovered it took a lot more dragging than the roe deer he was out after

    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"
