Thread: When is to late to shoot a roe doe or red hind?

  1. #1

    When is to late to shoot a roe doe or red hind?

    An often debated subject I have found, but when is really to late to shoot roe does or red hinds? I'm in Scotland and I just stalk as a hobby, I have no pressure to shoot large numbers of deer as there are few on the ground. This said when is the latest date you would shoot until? I find the thought of gralloching a heavily pregnant deer a bit wrong and unethical! Help please, thanks in advance.

    Youve answered your own question mate..

    As you feel its wrong gralloching heavily pregnant hinds and does and your not under the pressure of a management plan it doesnt matter what anybody else thinks... Stick to what your happy with
    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...

    I agree. Do what you are happy with. But why is it unethical? How would muntjac does ever get shot if that was the case?

    if your shooting for a hobby (ie:enjoyment) why do somethimg you dont like.if your under no pressure from land owns or crop damage to do it. shoot bucks and yearling follows and you will never have that prblem.
