    What is a man to do?

    Name:  Fallow.jpg
Views: 268
Size:  25.0 KBSo I am sitting at work and the missus sends me this photo of two fallow bucks on the other side of the fence just 50 metres from the kitchen window. She wouldn't know how to even get a rifle down let alone load and shoot. What is a man to do?

    Tell the old girl to go to Farmlands and go get you a big bag a maize (and cook some eggs).
    I'd love to have a few deer around my back door every now and then.

    Given the deer fence I'd add a set of fencing pliers to her shopping list

    I like the way you fella's think. 1. Not sure I could call her the old girl without kissing goodbye to eggs forever. 2. The pliers are in the shed but it is easier to use the gate. 3. Perhaps I should teach her to gut, carry and hang the buggers up as well!

    Shit they're just deer. Enjoy them for what they are.

    I doubt any of us are going hungry and it would be far from the hunt of lifetime to shoot em off the porch.

    Did they get out of your paddock? feed out and open the gate.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    No these are not escapees from my place, I farm red's. These are some feral fallow that have jumped into my neighbours.

    They are unusual bucks in that they have got really good length but don't look to have any palms to speak of.

    They are certainly not what I wpould call trophiy animals as the palms are generally very narrow but the young spikers and does are tasty and really tender.

    My thoughts exactly. Why waste time and energy going to the porch when you can shoot them out the window?

    Two reasons: 1. that really gets the ears ringing, and ... 2. the missus gives me shit for a week.

    To easy 'rushy" treat them well and enjoy that fact that they have come to visit your farm.

    They only exist in areas like the north because farmers have looked out for their welfare.

    Get some earmuffs and take the missus to obedience classes. They can be trained as long as you start as you mean to continue. They are a bit like a pup. If they have had the run of the place for a while some of their bad habits can be a bit hard to curb. Good luck.

    On ya 7. Its a good idea but a bit late for the muffs as I have had "gunner ear" (tinitus) for the last three and a half decades from my time as a grunt. As to training the missus, she aint a pup no longer and the disobedience is well and truly entrenched in her behaviour. You should see how out of control she gets with a mans wallet.
