Thread: Any deer in Powys?

  1. #1

    Any deer in Powys?

    It looks like I may be moving to Powys, Builth Wells area, and was wondering if there are any wild deer in the area.
    My Fiancee's family lives 6 miles north of Llandrindod Wells, and her Father says he's not seen one for years and years. Ive been out with the Hunt when weve been visiting family, and never seen any flushed by the hounds.

    So are there any?

    All depends where you are planning to stalk
    fallow,roe and muntjac now in Powys.. I know
    but also a lot of poachers and dedicated dog men
    having access to over 30,000 + acres in that area
    deer are few and far between
    fallow back of Builth but in limited pockets
    which hunt did you go out with
    sounds like Ithon valley
    but not sure why you would want to move to Builth
    considering I call Builth south of Llandod...!!!

    Yep, its the Ithon valley Hunt I go out with Stone.
    You get a better class of fight in Builth!!! Our son is in Builth High school already My Fiancee is living there plus our son is in Builth High school already, and if Im honest, we both prefer the area. Only down point (from a Southern point of view) is the price of fuel, but I can live with a few pence per litre more expensive versus the rat race in Surrey.

    It's a small world
    i hav a few friends that follow that pack... Some I also went to school with
    Llandod high myself... Many moons ago that is
