DEER  

In the local area fallow, Roe and Muntjac are the most common species of deer to be seen. Fallow can often be seen in groups or even large numbers, whilst Roe and Muntjac live more solitary lives. Fallow have just one offspring although there are indications that occasionally 2 may be produced. Roe often produce 2 or even 3 though not all may survive. Muntjac produce 1 offspring every 7 months.

All deer will cause damage of one sort or another. Due to their size and numbers Fallow will flatten large areas of crops, damage young trees in cleaning their antlers of velvet. Roe will damage trees by browsing on shoots, especially rose canes in the spring, if they can get into gardens for them but also when cleaning antlers of velvet. Bucks will also damage trees making a rutting stand.Several bucks in one area will compete for the attentions of a doe and many trees may be damaged by the individual bucks. Muntjac graze young trees at a low level and will often stunt the growth of a tree.

There has been much discussion in the press lately about the Muntjac. They are a relatively recent import to the country and have expanded rapidly over large areas. For such a small deer, they do a tremendous ammount of damage to woodland and there are calls for more rigorous control measures to be taken as they are classed as an invasive foreign species.

Recently there have been calls for more rigorous  control of all deer species in England due to the fact that they are grazing woodland and grassland to the extent that it is leaving no cover for many of our native birds to nest or feed and numbers are dropping rapidly.

We do not charge for deer control if we are able to take what we shoot, within reason.
