    Will be interesting to see what their angle on it is.

    Knowing what the bbc do to unsupport fieldsport's it will probably be anti but we will see, and as for john craven well we all know what he think's about blood sports.

    Could be worse it could be Bill oddy.

    But maybe I'll be wrong hopefully.

    Mark.

    There you go! Peter Fraser reckons that it is all you lowland stalkers fault. Roedeer totally out of control. Red deer an endangered species, all 350000 of them. Craven shoots a crap group and Fraser says fine?

    I didn't quite hear it like that. Peter Fraser said when Craven suggested that the NT at Mar Lodge commented on the increase in deer numbers as a trend over the last 60 years that the deer in his area were not increasing. He said that the Roe population had exploded. What I would say is that the two interviewee's at Mar (NT and the Employee) did not substantiate the population increase claim to a specific species. So they have left it a bit vague?

    Where's the FC ? It's their dam policy in the main that I would say is the future issue.

    Are the FC going to turn around in a couple of years and say (like that national trust) that they got 'it' wrong?

    The NT response has to be moderate, as 1000's of members who pay membership each year would be horrified to know they condone killing Bambi! (and yes I know Bambi was a Roe)

    Bambi was a fawn White tail - so I was told?? But that was by a yank...

    Probably right there, bound to be a yank breed! My mistake. In my defence it was not on my DSC recognition test!
