A Native American stalking tip

I think their point was that the deer might be obscured by foliage or something, despite being close. I've also heard that you can get really close to deer if you're on horseback as they only see the horse - not so easy shooting one from there, though
I have experienced this in the past. The deer took little notice when I rode past them on a horse, even when I stopped they just paused in whatever they were doing but gave no sign of fear. But this may have been because I was using a route frequently used by riders?

My Granddad used to shoot grazing geese for food, he would walk on the lee side of his pony and cart and line a few up....

Back in those days you got 1/2 a day a week off to haul coal, get to the local village for a few supplies then back working on the Fens..

You just need a slot out the front to poke your rifle. That is not a euphism btw. :rolleyes:
Wasn't there a pantmime cow in an episode of Dads Army with a rifle opening? :lol:

I remember about thirty five years ago, pony trekking in Wales. Five or six deer jumped out of the woodland and ran along in line between me and the horse in front of me as we galloped along a forest road. They didn't seem worried by the riders on the horses at all and ran along with us for about a 100 meters before peeling off back into the woods.

always use a rabbit to wipe your ass because pooh doesn't stick to their fur
I can't wait to see the advertising campaign for this "toiletry". It ticks so many boxes in terms of being environmentally friendly/ recyclable/ reducing waste etc. It's just the animal welfare angle that might be tricky to overcome :-|:D

No animals hurt and in fact because there would be a rising demand for them so numbers would increase.

Read on another forum, Pigeonwatch of all places, that when trying to get close to a grazing deer, one should rip up grass as you go because the sound makes them think you're just a herbivore and thus no threat. Anyone heard that before?
You missed the obvious, Indians hunted with bows and spears. The info I've gleaned from this site indicates that you can do neither in the UK.

Here's a Native American tip, revenge on the white man is best accomplished with a casino. White men may have bought NY with beads and trinkets - but they wI'll gladly trade real cash money for plastic chips.
