Raynardman, you have been very open and stated they are farm/captive deer, deer in parks around the country and farm deer still need keeping in check. For you to offer someone the chance for a 1st deer and carcass preparation, I see nothing wrong with the offer.. The ones complaining, don't waste your time with. If the thread gets derailed, I'll remove the posts that offer nothing...

I cant see anything wrong in it the lad told what he was offering and he didnt dress it up, he made it quite clear it had nothing to do with stalking ability , and it was a cull situation on a captivated herd,
Captivated herds need culling at certain times , and what better way to do it in a controlled situation, The person who takes up the offer would also benefit in other ways as i am sure the gentlemen making the offer will show the correct procedure in carrying out a gralloch which to a novice can be daunting task, being shown that procedure can only benefit their experience in the future.

As long as it does not count as mark up in a DMQ portfolio that would not be acceptable .
Well done to him I say for making an offer available

Regards
Stu

Sometimes some of the folk on here really surprise me. :( Anyone with a slight knowledge of deer know that their population here in the UK cannot control itself naturally.. Although some stalkers see their pursuit as nothing more than an elite form of hunting which gives them status due to it's exclusivity, they perform a necessary task...

What would be the alternative to culling in this case? I suppose the landowners could always take a leaf out of the LACS' book and their failed Exmoor deer park experiment.. :no:

There isnt one, not a realistic one anyway, Maybe darting and then injection by a vet and then the carcass disposed of by incineration.
The owners /landowners have a legal responsibility for their well being and general health and habitat control, as far as i can see this lad is trying to do exactly that, how he achieves it is up to him.
as long as his actions dont contravene any laws that is and from what I see of it he isnt and the person taking up the offer is accompanied whilst using an estate rifle in close proximity.

Well bloody good on him for making the offer available to a novice, it may just whet their appetite for them to take it up full time. If others can benefit from it then perhaps we should all take a leaf out of his book.
