Thread: Red Rutting or not?

  1. #1

    Red Rutting or not?

    Just got back from Thetford and all the deer are hiding! Not a noise or a sign of the Red rut. A few hinds and calves were seen in small numbers, ones and twos but no stags! Very few deer seen in general, had to make do with a couple of Muntjac!

    What are the Red doing in your area? I am sure the tropical weather has thrown the rut out and general deer behaviour?

    Spoke to a mate who is Stalking in Perthshire near Blair Atholl. Nothing happening up there yet. He is hoping for the first frosts to get things moving.

    I was watching a very large Stag with a group of 15 hinds and calfs tue night very close to Thetford. he was calling so loud as he was back and forth through some cover crop, so im sure it has started.
