The biggest red I've seen was here in Devon few years back now, he had a little hareem of three or four hinds and about 4 juvenile stags in toe in tow, I had the little cocker X with me, I may have instinctively made a hiss, to which the little dog began to tear off towards said herd. The stag just stood looking and as I searched for a whistle stag began to walk then trot then took the whole stampede off with little dog in hot pursuit, he didn't come back for about 30 minutes, I began to imagine he'd been killed because of my stupidity, as a friend said lucky he didn't come back being worn as a hat. But lesson learned and I suppose if I thought about it in times when it was legal you might have slipped on the smaller beasts at the rear, but probably not a chance I'd take, in truth I'd feel obliged to join In to save my dog and realistically given a moment's thought I have to go to work earn a living support kids family, but it's easy to get caught up in the moment and slip....

The only reds I’ve ever seen were in Richmond Park, as I was biking round it last year.. absolutely massive they were. I’ve ran fallow in the past and these looked twice the size, especially there necks.. it’s a no from me.

Hinds are taken a lot easier than Stags.It's all down to the individual beast (Stag) some take off and can't be stopped using every bit of the terrain to there advantage,some take off get tired and then stand there ground and seek sanctuary in shallow rivers,flooded peat diggings,streams etc and some are just big ignorant beast that hardly move and don't recognise the danger till it's too late. I've seen all types take them Colliex Bullx  Deerhoundx Bedlingtonx Salukix. Up Caithness early 90s I seen them ran regular with a mates Deerhoundx and these where good dogs,however the best dog up there for them was a firstx Saluki/Greyhound,I'm sure it was called Brandy iirc,a big 28" dog.

I know you probably don't care mick, but you know hardly anyone off here is going to believe you. A first cross saluki/greyhound? Come on lol 👍

By the way, I am a believer

There is a few of us on here who used to go up to Caithness regular throughout the 90s to the same place and went out with the same man but they refuse to comment on any Red threads on here for the usual arguments that always start in these threads. I never even seen the Brandy dog run mate but the lads who told me about it all had there own dogs running the same stuff and they where not the type to lie or give credit to a dog that didn't deserve it. Those that have ran them know they can be taken and those that have not are usually the ones doubting it . Just the way it is .

Who told you that lol ? The further North you get they dont get as big as the some of the South/Park deer due to environment/food availability but certainly still a formidable task.
