Thread: muntjac Edinburgh and Lothians?

  1. #1

    muntjac Edinburgh and Lothians?

    I've recently spoken to several people who claim to have regularly seen muntjac surprisingly close to Edinburgh.

    I'm not sure I believe them, but two of the landowners whose land I shoot on are really worried about it.

    Does anyone know for sure just how close they are?

    `Bout 250 miles

    None around here bud.

    I was shown a photo of a muntjac supposedly taken somewhere around Kirknewton but had no way of verifying its authenticity.
    So until there is more proof it is an urban legend!

    Kirknewton is one of the places I've heard mentioned!

    Admittedly by someone who also claims to have seen fallow grazing by the Linhouse...

    I was in at a farm just outside peebles heading towards Edinburgh a few year back . It was next to a big estate with high towers all over it . The farmer told me they had released 12 cwd or munties and within a week half of them had been flattened on the road. Maybe some of the border boys could verify this......scott

    With munties I would expect that if you spent any significant amount of time on the ground you would hear them even if you dont see them. The bark is quite unique and highly unlikely to be mistaken for anything else.

    Are you sure you didn't hear him say "we have lots of Munters around Kirknewton"?
    because that would be very accurate
