There is an air of impertinence about you today furg and you can't be blaming the heat young man

No more than what stiffy dishes out, especially to me.

No need to blame the heat blacky 👍

The last few months, in several of his posts, on a few threads, I'd even go so far as to say he was being obtusive, just for the sake of obtusiveness. 😄👍

Seen plenty in The New Forest,..big old things.... My old dogs never made any impression on them ,..and in a way I was glad.... Also walked into large Reds on Scottish Isles,...plus had a few runs,

In the past, I've caught plenty of Fallow Does and Pricketts with my roustabout curs,..but only a couple of fairish Bucks,...a wire fence, (and a deep ditch) helped out Big floppy old things,

 My whole point is that a roe is nearly always found in pairs or singular . 
 

a dog that performs against a roe if that's all it knows is generally found wanting when looses into that big herd moving over the wheat..

it’s a very different prospect for a dog . Two or three targets at most , against one from a moving mass that can eat the ground up when pushed hard . 
 

but then you’d know this

You're right about herds, seems to flummox a dog at times, also noticed at the start it can fry the brain of a real stock broke dog a bit, not seeing the trees for the wood as it were.

Seems to be time of year though, see roe in 1-3 most of the year, fallow seem to herd up at times, and at others we seem to see lots of 1-3 animal groups. Also I've noticed that once a herd is scattered, they seem to lose their heads a bit and stand about confused in various places.

you get fallow buck that's been around and seen dogs it will deff open some peoples eyes especialywiv their deer dogs, regular buck dog different class 

A fallow buck in prime condition is a task for any dog definitely alot harder than a roe. 

Roe certainly can shift but they don't have much fight once caught. The fallow buck on the other hand can shift and has the power to knock a dog out of the way. 

Iv seen them turn around on the dog and have ago, they certainly opened my eyes.

Never ran a red stag, don't think I would  entertain one for the sake of the dog

I’d think there’s been a few dogs killed by such animals. 

I had my deerhound threw about 3m in the air by a fallow, he turned around faced her then got her in his antlers and just threw her like she was nothing

This is what we are working with here, one's thing is for sure if you're a known hunter you will get no sympathy should you be killed. 

Pet/Park deer far more dangerous, after they lose their fear of humans. Although I have known someone to be charged by a wild sika stag.

I’d love to see a dog single handed do one of them IMO I don’t think any dog in open land would hold one bull greyhounds game as can be and like dinosaurs three of them couldn’t do it not going to happen

You mean a southern one or just any red stag?

Red stags 

Both southern & highland can and have been done with 2 dogs. When it comes to highland stags as well bull greyhounds definitely aren’t the dogs for the job.
I think if you had the right dog on the day, and the stag was far enough away from woodland it could be done on the hills single handed, but I’ve never known it to be done yet so can’t say it definitely can be.
