    Poll: For stalkers that stalk MORE than 50 days /year

    This poll is for stalkers who stalk more than 50 days/ year
    I have chosen 50 as I think that will exclude most recreational stalkers and I want to get an idea from people who are out on their ground a lot.

    I have had to put it this way as poll options are not big enough. That and I don't know how to do a post.
    To use please post your reply as the number describing your area + any comments you wish to leave

    Lets see where this goes
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Numbers have held steady, although with Fallow its not easy to make good judgements. I manage areas across the UK and the only place I have seen numbers decline is on CWD in the Beds area. Roe yearlings suffered this spring due to bad weather and heavy snow, but all the does up to now are in very good condition. Mind you the keeper next door to my lease in Bucks was shooting 75 CWD a year I was told which is stupid numbers.

    By the end of this year I will have stalked 203 days! Most Fallow are still holding in the deep woods and feeding on sweet chestnut and acorns. All the ones we have culled are heavy in fat and in good condition.

    Still to many mature Red Stags being shot in Scotland and mass culls doing no good for deer management.
