Big Phil BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor (132* d) RE: BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor 27 Oct 10


Oh Deer,

Pun intended, I do wish the tree huggers who post on here had some idea of wildlife management, then their posts might make more sense.

There is very little land in England that is not owned by somebody. This owned land if it has game on it will (most of the time) be "rented" out to some shooting syndicate or other.

This deer that was shot, fell into the above situation, someone paid brass to shoot it - all legal and above board.

After a number of years a Stag will start to "go back" meaning his antlers will be smaller and he will start to lose condition. I also believe this beast was the dominent Stag for many years, time to alter the gene pool by taking him out and giving another chance to enhance the herd.

I summise that a handsome ammount of brass was handed over for the "pleasure of shooting this beast, no doubts many thousands.
It was "his time" and I have no problem with that.

If any of you moaners out there eat ANY kind of meat, I guarentee it will not be killed as humanely as this fine animal was, and that's a fact. End of.

Phil*
