Thread: When is a Deer Not a Deer

    When is a Deer Not a Deer

    I like the new format and presentation of the site but to keep the excellence, I hope the admin forgive me, I would like to draw attention to the first page with this little quote.

    'When is a deer not a deer' When its a Sika! The term Sika Deer is wrong. It should be Japanese Deer or Japanese (or other) Sika. We should strive to be correct in the info we put out. Picky I know but if we are to be the best site....... Fab2

    Or, in my case, when I've stalked up close to a pheasant feeder, or a molehill, or a wallaby......

    There's a thread: Deer I glassed or (worse) stalked that were not deer...

    A bit like falling over and jumping up in the hope that no-one noticed...

    I'm fine!

    When its in the Larder then its Venison ! and bloody tasty it is ,. Along with others I have watched a molehill change from a couched deer ! into a molehill !!!. Eye test imminent.

    The alternative scenario is worse. I thought I saw a deer nearly a mile away. Yomped through some dead ground asap. Reappeared having lost all perspective and the lay of the land I had been looking down at. Was just convincing myself that I had spotted a cow or horse at that distance when a fine fallow buck ran off!!! It was a longer walk back
