How strange, do you know what mate I genuinely never seen 1 that I can remember and I put a lot of hours in one winter down there.......seen plenty of Roe, fallow, pigs, foxes etc etc but never 1 muntjac.

Mind you, I was on the back of a land rover all the time so they could have easily been missed ! Lol 😂 

The muntis are spreading out like wildfire but because they don’t behave like roe etc they seem to have a reasonable hold on places before anyone realises they are there, I saw my first one on the Cotswolds when I was working up there and writhing 3 years I was catching them on trail cameras 40 miles further south and I now get them running around behind the warehouses in Avonmouth, i don’t no how long they have been about up there or when you were active up there they may have moved in when you left, out of interest how far south do people see them as G.B is only about 45 miles further down than me and has not got them yet it seems 👍

He will get culled just like everything else 😁

Use to be a lot of good digging to be had  round Cotswold shame we didn't have the same results with a light

The places I always used to see them was Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Flitwick way.

Essex and Suffolk are literally alive with the things.

Seems to be the case that they are just spreading south mate, very successfullly as well like I said from my observation they covered over 40 mile in 3/4 years, they also seem to breed all year long I get loads of young and pregnant females on the cameras, they also make a nice snack for something else that seems to be getting a spreading out as well 😂 Mc munti 😂

Was there any damage to the neck of that mate ?

They make an awful racket, in fact I personally think it’s one of the most alarming distress calls I have ever heard.

That would have attracted critters for miles if it’s airways were open

I never got to see that one in person, the wounds on the throat often need shaving or skinning to see the damage and it’s not what most people want to  do or have the gear to do when they come across that , it’s normally a shot on a mobile and move on, it’s more of a crushing bite than a cutting bite, Got to agree with you about the noise definitely not keen on dying 😂

Munties my second favourite after sika .Wish sika would spread as fast as munties .Cant walk anywhere round me without seeing them daylight .Night time lifting .You can see why they spread so fast ,they are never still apart from sleeping .Got to within 6 foot of a sleeping buck other night with thermal .It jumped up and went straight into a stream in panic 😌

Chinese bit localised and can’t see them going far

I’ve got a fair few contracts up that way including brize Norton. Loaded with muntjac ... I kill around 70 a year around there  ......

You'll be lucky to get 10 next year.

I'm fascinated by chunks and muntys.desperate to eat one but never ever seen either.

Considering how many there are near me I see very few if any road casualty’s in comparison to roe, have bonneted a couple of roe myself while driving round the lanes at night slowly but never see the muntis unless the dogs push them out of the hedge bottoms yet on the Cotswolds I see them out all the time, 👍
