Can any one out there tell me if there is a closed season for Chinese water deer as a index from the Sporting Gun says shoot at any time, but this web site under UK deer and seasons section states open seasons between Nov 1st / Feb 28th-29th

many thanks Phil



I always used to check the seasons on the BASC site, and they are saying the same as this site.

But I've just checked with my BDS Training Manual and it says that there is no closed season, but the BDS recommend that CWD should not be shot between 1 April and 31 October to avoid the risk of orphaning fawns.

It seems that this site and the BASC have got it wrong - if the BDS have got it right (sometimes that can be a big 'if')
