Firstly hi Wayne old mate we are fine, looking forward to the winter as this buck shooting in a thick fern wood is bloody hard work.
Secondly the mother was there with her other fawn and only left the dead one when she spotted me.
Thirdly It may be bad management as we have only started shooting this ground in december 07 and we have shot thirty odd roe and six muntjac off there,so there was a few about, when my mate sat in a highseat the other night in the wood, he had a call for a bit to try for a buck and he had 5 muntjac around the seat at the same time.
Its the clearest place in the wood
If i need to apologize for my comment i do it now but it looks like i was right and i am sure when the deer numbers are brought down infant mortality will lessen.
