That's why I'm not really bothered about halal meat in supermarkets, (but can understand the points rised by others) I never buy meat from supermarkets.

Wild meat and fish is the best you can get, you have watched it grow though the year, and then dispatch it with one clean shot.

Shoot/catch gut, skin, butcher and then eat it yourself, what can be better than that........nothing.

Indeed mate, couldn't have put it better myself.

Which deer are more plentiful?
Border

Jim......in our area I would say roe deer, followed by red deer.

Fallow deer were only introduced to our area about 10 years ago. As yet there is no hunting season for them, so they are protected.

Well, that is to say we can shoot calves from 1st-15th December each year.

That in the next few years will change as they are breeding so fast, they will need thinning out.
sod

thank you that is a very popular place. Here we can shoot deerany time of year as they are classed as a pest like wild pigs (Captain cookers)

Paul they're terrific pictures.  Thanks for sharing them with us.
Border

Glad you all have enjoyed them.......nice to know what's happening when you're not around.

Because of the hard weather we are having at the moment I have just put another feeding barrel up. Could not understand after two days 25 kg of wheat and maize was gone the barrel was empty.

So I put a trail camera up and the following is what it captured, no wonder the barrel was empty, when I'm feeding this lot.







Nice roe buck, he's ear marked for the freezer.



This fellow is enjoying some sugar beet.

As you know, I've got a trail cam but living where we do, we don't have any deer and so far I've only managed foxes, rabbits and the occasional chicken.

What are the other birds with the pheasants?
Border

Wood pigeons and jays.

On other images there are hooded crows and a robin.

Have a look at these links Jim.

Hooded crows



I am going to move the camera, so it gets little more light as the pics are not clear, plus frost on the lens does not help.
adirondack-jim

Thanks for the links, hooded crow is pretty striking.
Border

I went to empty the images on some of my trial cams this afternoon, there was the usual jays, chaffinchs, crows, magpies, pheasants plus a host of small birds.

Its amazing how quick animals cotton on to new feeding methods. The feeders I am using at the moment, a spiral has to be pecked or the corn, maize or what ever will not fall out.

The roe and fallow deer have now also worked out how to get corn out.

A buck and two roe



A fallow buck getting his fill.



He even posed for the camera.





Some other images from same camera.





Reynard on the prowl.



Now for the sharp eyed of you, what triggered this image?



A couple of images taken on another camera.



.........and matey got taken on his own camera, well I suppose its better then being taken on someone else's camera.  

HonkHonk

Is it a mouse at the base of the right handside leg of the feeder?  

You are looking rather well there mate, enjoying the day with your dog.  
Border

Just a quiet walkabout with the young dog on the last day on the season.
Bag one cock pheasant for one shot.

I saw a load of hen pheasants, but I don't shoot hens the last month of the season.

Yes, your correct mate........but its a young rat......he is no more  
HonkHonk

Nice stuff mate, do you put your own pheasants down or just wait and see what nature provides?

bdooly rats  

You look like you have slimmed down a bit there Paul, that is not a sign of being a poor hunter I hope    no but seriously you look 10 years younger than the last pics I saw of you.
