"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.

Yesterday afternoon, I was looking out of the study and could see:

    Muntjac - 25m away just wandering around and jumping up at the foliage
    Ring Necked Parakeet - 10m away in a tree and it remained there for at least a couple of hours
    Grey Squirrels - several

All of them are non-native and would have been easy safe targets and had I checked the river there would have been Amaerican Signal Crayfish too.

On the subject of Muntjac, we had an early and very frosty start in the truck yesterday and drove past a group of farm cottages just up the road from us. Outside on the verge was a very large brown dog of indescribable parentage tucking in to a Muntjac. I have seen a lot of things in the Wolds however that is a first for me.

Dealing with the non native one at a time I guess.
