I know that Roe deer are territorial and have patterns regarding feeding etc, but I have been told by several people you can never rely on a red deer being anywhere. However on the road out of my village there is a couple of big fields with a small birch wood on the edge of them, bordering a river. I cycle along this road nearly every evening after shooting crows on a local farm or just being out in general, and for the past 6 or 7 days there has been a red hind coming across the river and feeding on the edge of the birch wood and through one of the fields. I normally stop and stalk into her and get quite close. She has a distinctive rip in her left ear ( I was thinking she may have come from the deer farm 15 miles away and the rip could be from a tag thats come out? ) She appeared for about 3 weeks last summer as well, same rip in the ear. Any way, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if they have feeding patterns or not?
