Thread: Disaster

    Disaster

    Morning chaps,

    some of you know that over the last 3/4 months I have been feeding a number of Fallow with Fawns in a smallish wood that I shoot and trail cams have showed that they were resident,

    I was hoping to take a Buck when they appeared or a Doe this morning but Hey guess what, the plonker of a farmer (yes I am peed off) allowed the local hunt to go rampaging through the woods yesterday despite me telling him, only last month, of my plans and agreeing to let him have a haunch, which he really likes.

    Not being too experienced in deer management the question is will they return soon after Hounds have driven them off and is it worth continuing to lay feed down for them?

    I suppose I know they will return in time but just P"ssd off big time at the moment as it would have been good to have had some sport this morning.

    Grumble over lol,

    Regards WB

    +1 or even sooner. I have actually seen the hunt in the adjoining field and a herd of fallow hunkered down in the woods within 50 yards of them.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    No its not a disaster. A disaster is when you lose your family in a earthquake, sunami or such. If i was the farmer and you called me a plonker you would be off the ground direct.

    Deer manager please don't make me laugh.

    I wouldn't worry too much. Fallow being Fallow they will be back overnight or within a couple of days, if not disturbed too much.

    No one owns the deer they will come back to your feed points as its free on tap grub.

    I have to agree. I imagine WB has put a lot of hard work in and feared it was all in vein! Maybe he was letting off a bit of steam ?!? So in answer to the post stick with it WB they should be back.
