"The Dromia Rule"

Deer Stalking… reliable word of mouth recommendation from someone you know has undertaken such stalking being offered by a specific syndicate is best. Like other walks of life, stalking has its scammers. E.G., make sure there is deer, of the species sought, on the land being made available; that appropriate insurance is in place; that there is recourse for recompense if it all goes wrong. In addition, obtain and understand terms and conditions; consider the implications of allowing a syndicate leader to be a FAC mentor; make sure ‘coaches’ are suitably qualified; consider the quality of deer management, the construction & execution of a shooting plan and safety; determine if the land is over-shot.

If in doubt, contact BASC or similar.

Anyone considered to be a scammer will be banned without warning.

Was fortunate to see one in June last year near to us. It was regularly out at about 6PM hunting. I suspect the blood under the wing was from a kill, not the owl itself. Hope to get back there again and see it again this year.

Thanks. It's a Canon Eod 5dsr, with a 100-400mm zoom (at 400mm for these), Christel.

Great pictures. They are quite common around here at this time of year (Lincolnshire Wolds) Once you understand their patterns you can get incredibly close to them as well. Just sit quietly along a hedgerow and when you see one wait as they tend to circuit the fields before moving on.

Thanks David, and I just realised I didn't spot the spelling mistake on the camera. It should be an Eos 5dsr.

We're pretty certain Spot was a dog, not a barn owl...
