I don’t often shoot these , but he was on the border of the shoot and I haven’t seen him before. So before he disappeared or someone else shot him. He is now in the chiller. I reckon he will  medal .

I nicked another one this morning. Nothing like the first . I just thought I’d make it worth putting the chiller on . 

CWD don’t eat too bad either

Plenty of them around here, unfortunately they seem to be getting hammered every way they turn.

Frankly they should be under the terms of the W&C Act, they are a non indigenous species, unlawfully released/escaped into the wild, and it should be shoot on sight, but for some reason a few years back we actually gave them a season!  The reason for their presence in the wild in the UK is similar to the Muntjac, but so far no seasons for them???    

Lets be clear here, I have no specific downer on them, I simply do not understand the Legislature of this country sometimes!!

Yes I think your right, but I for one am glad it’s not the case, without those I would only have Munties to go at as no fallow or roe on my bit.

unlike the SE we don’t get the damage from these that fallow cause, and in truth crop damage is minimal, they do tend to flatten it where they lie down though, and that’s why the farmers hate them.

We’ve got a few Chinese in Lincolnshire around me, but nowhere near as many as muntjac…. Maybe they don’t breed as well, or maybe because they are much easy to catch or shoot than a munty? 

They breed like hell, nothing unusual to find them late in he season with 4 sometimes 5 inside them, ive been told they can have 6 but never seen that, I try and finish a bit earlier on them if I can.

This is true but they have a high mortality rate with being born so small, easy prey for predators.
