single handed cant imagine any dog taking a red stag? Heard of dogs doing it in pairs. A lad up north lost a big 28" half cross on a red stag according to facebook lol ;-). However I wasn't referring to deer :thumbs: . Very enjoyable thread thanks for sharing gents.

 

Sri Lankan Samba deer are 50% bigger than Scottish Red deer.  During the 1900 Samuel Baker routinely took Sri Lankan Samba stags with a pair of English Coursing Greyhounds.  He also hunted them with a pack of hounds.  It is detailed in his book 'The Hound and Rifle in British Ceylon'.  The book can be read for free at the link below.

It is an excellent read, and makes me think I was born 100 years too late...

Were the sambar deer ran in thick cover or dense scrub ULG?I remember reading a coursing account from an old victorian book and they ran sambar in ceylon.

If importing dogs from the US to the UK wasn't so difficult, id love to see a couple of female coyote dogs sent over and used as fox dogs, i know they'd turn heads and make the bullx lads think

Anybody with a mind to improving there line might find it a better idea to import straws from the stag lines, am sure stuntman would point them in the right direction :thumbs:
