Thread: The Deer Initiative. HELP PLEASE

  1. #1

    The Deer Initiative. HELP PLEASE

    just had the bbc1 contct me about a proposed ntional cull the DI are supposed to be planning/calling out for.
    they have asked me to comment.
    they rang at 9.15am today and will arrive at 1030 for a chat for the programme look north tonight at 6.30
    talk about been on the back foot.
    I will only comment about things i know...
    1. we have alot of roe but not an eperdemic and local sport shooters and gamekeepers can keep things right here.
    2 some counties i have visited have a problem but that is not for me to comment on.
    does anyone here have any facts about the di's plan.
    nothing on their web site.
    thanks (in a panic) john

    It's probably this type of article that's sparked them off:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-15334624

    "Management of the animals comes down to individual landowners, says Langbein. If they own a gun licence they can cull as many or as few as they like, in accordance with the law. There is no prescribed amount. "A lot of landowners don't start managing numbers soon enough, some don't manage them at all. To effectively control a deer population of two million you would have to cull 300,000 to 400,000 a year. It's quite a lot."


    They probably had no idea that any wild deer at all were being culled and are now getting into a major tizz because of the numbers being mentioned - it has been edited upwards on the article from 30,000 when it was first published. It's all 'news' to them and will probably blow over once the next politician moves onto the front page.

    EDIT: Oops wrong link - try it now.

    Your link gave some odd results - it was as though I was replying to John

    I think this is the correct link (http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...-in-the-Autumn) and yes, interesting to see that the cull is now 300,000 to 400,000 per year!
