"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.

Definitely a "Wet" market, mine was sitting in a keep net in the harbour when I picked it up. No side effects yet!

To follow up ...

Have been pretty successful recently, small and medium ones.

Here are two that when laid out would be about 15-16cm long with large claws around 6cm:

I had seen bigger but not managed to get one recently, however, in the river today I found a couple of claws along with decomposed bodies:

At 8 cm long, and the shell I could see, it suggests they came from crayfish around 20-22cm long - 8-9". They are there, just cannot get them onto the net - pork fat is the current bait of choice.
