Thread: Rate the deer species by how tricky they are

  1. #1

    Question Rate the deer species by how tricky they are

    This is only intended as a light hearted bit of fun and it will clearly involve some generalisation but I would be curious to see how people think the UK species stack up in terms of how hard/ easy they are to bag?

    No 1 should be the species you think are the hardest. If you haven't stalked a species then just leave it out of your list.
    Mine would be as follows:

    1) Sika
    2) Fallow
    3) Muntjac
    4) Red
    5) Roe
    6) CWD

    By way of explanation. No 1, 2 and No 6 were easy decisions for me to rank whereas 3, 4 and 5 required a bit more thought (it was close so on a different day they might have gone in a different order). Muntjac being a smaller target, easily obscured by vegetation, coupled with their dislike of standing still just tipped them ahead of Red and Roe.

    Whichever one you happen to be stalking as a DMQ Level 2 Assessor steps on every twig just behind you!

    Spot on assessment.

    Wouldn't the ground over which you stalk, determine, how easy it is to spot, and or, stalk any species!

    Anyone who does not put sika(hinds) at the top of their list has clearly never tried to manage them.....

    Just get a .338 lap mag and shoot them from 800yds away. Easy then

    In seriousness,
    Fallow,
    Muntie then roe

    Sika
    Muntie
    Fallow
    Roe.
    muntie and fallow could be either way. My assessment is stalking them not from seats.

    The first 5 are spot on , i'll have to take your word on the CWD as I've never shot one ...
