"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.

How do you get the 20st Deer home that you have just shot half a mile into the woods? wtf
Theres probably a simple answer to this but I cant think of it :D

BTW I've never shot a Deer, in the woods or otherwise.

Drag it, however it is easier to have something to put it on and drive out with.

I thought dragging it would be too obvious and assumed there may be a very clever way of doing it :oops:
Best to not go Deer shooting without a vehical then!

You lose a lot of the weight from it in the gralloch.
Then drag/carry, depending on terrain.

New Zealand technique is to only take out the haunches if in mountainous terrain.
If a few are shot for the meat trade they're helicoptered out.
