As you say, very often this is not practical in the Highlands.It looked as if the second stag had been gralloched in the field and then dragged through the peat hags, heather etc which would surely impact on the cleanliness of the carcase - I would have expected a deer sled or pony to be used if the Argo could not reach the location (or am I perhaps being impractical)
Sometimes too much emphasis is placed on camouflage.Guide colour of surrounding vegetation, the Rifles stand out like rat poo in a sugar bowl!
You're correct.2nd stag had a change of headgear and coat colour also between being shot and being found, lol!
100% +1Sometimes too much emphasis is placed on camouflage.
It's more about movement, smell and hearing than colours.
