"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.

A question for those of you that deal with such things, are you seeing many Rabbits out yet under the lamp?

Next to nothing yet up here, though I'm starting to see one or two scrapes on daylight forays.

I am not seeing as much evidence of them as I would expect despite the farmers comments.

I've noticed on my permission lately they are increasing in numbers. I counted around a hundred the other day at dusk.
Going to be a good summers shooting, will have to get a bigger freezer lol

I was dodging bunnies aplenty last night in the Landy in one of the fields near me in Oxfordshire.

Not many bunnies out yesterday evening which brings me to a question......
Do they stay underground more when they are breeding/have young?
