I work a lot on a shoot in devon i will not mention the name. its a great place and is hunted on, over and around a lot stalking lamping shooting fishing ferreting the lot. Was in the beating line yesterday and we where driving out a cover crop when we stumbled over a big red stag he was a good mature animal. This next bit makes me f***ing sick. He had been shot and the poor excuse of a poacher had only cut his head off!!! Left the rest to rot! Now i would be lying if i said i hadn't been out walking with the dogs some places i shouldn't of. But i tell you one thing if i do ever catch or kill anything it comes home with me and goes in the pot..Even if i do have to break my back carrying it home. To waste such an animal as a red stag! So some mug can stick it up in his shed makes me sick to the teeth. Sorry to have a rant but if any one is doing this stop and have a think for a minute. Do you think this is right? I am not having a go a poachers. As i understand this happens and has done for a long time but to kill a stag cut its head off and leave the rest is just childish!!! So if your up to this stuff grow up man up and get a conscience. its such a waste and really should not be happening it taints the hunting world with such a bad name!!!! Any way rant over and i hope you all agree with me.
All the best snatch
