    If it is it is most definitely a "mans" vaccy packer!
    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

Do you choose to break out a rifle and go get the bugger or do you let the bugger live for another day and carry on with the gut filling exercise?

    Ya gotta know the Rushy tum tum won that little tussle.
    I thought that there were only Fallow deer out wood hill way. Would he be living in the forest or on some farmers place?

    There are a lot of deer farms in the area (I used to own one). These red deer I see on my place now will be the progeny of escapees over the years. I only lost one in seventeen years but know of others that lost some and what we have now is the result of nature doing its thing. Stags will be stags.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Was it hard to get everything together in order to get a legal deer farm? I heard that a few deer got liberated when the price of venison fell.

    Makes my lecturer seem like he's not pulling my leg when he says there's deer in pukekohe.

    How did the one deer escape?

    There's deer from Port Waikato to the Manukau Heads, and in the hills behind Papakura/Drury. All private land tho. Deer are good at jumping fences, particularly when they want a root.

    It had been separated into a pen in the deer shed for slaughter. An arsehole of a neighbour opened the pen while I was at home letting it settle down before I shot it. Next minute it was out on SH16 and gone across several dairy farms into the hills. Also a deer fence or gate is not a barrier to a deer if they are panicked and want out. Stags leap them easily.

    And getting the access is hard. I know If I had some deer I wouldn't let many people on to shoot them.
