Good day gents

Craig, maybe your rooster is too smart to come and crow on a cold Canadian morning.

My dogs get me up at the crack of tomorrow to go out and then get fed. Once that's done, I go back to bed until it's today.

When I was in New Zealand visiting my daughter and SIL went turkey hunting. Over there almost all introduced species are considered invasive and open for hunting. No season or bag limits on turkey, male or female. They were everywhere in farm country (we were on South Island) and no need for camo or blinds. When some of the locals heard we were hunting turkeys they asked what we were going to do with them and looked absolutely shocked when we said we were going to eat them.

Hi folks,

A frosty and foggy morning here in London.

So to answer people’s questions.

Muntjac are an invasive species in the UK and damage understory foliage which really helps birds. They Also love getting at crops like turnips / swedes and sugar beat.

Muntjac breed very quickly:

-          7 month cycle

-          Females can get pregnant from 8 months and can conceive within days of giving birth

-          Breed all year round

So, control is a major issue for numbers as females can reproduce 3 times in 2 years.

Sizewise - Adults are 10kg (22lb)  to 18kg (40lb) and  44cm (17”) to 52cm (20”) at shoulder (And in fact the larger end of those measurements is quite rare).

 The other thing I would say is they are quite a primitive Asian deer so don’t have very developed front shoulders and because they are not a large animal I tend to shoot them through the shoulders (They hang around cover and can really bury themselves if they run and if you go for the heart / lung shot behind the shoulder you don’t have much margin to get it wrong and not be in the smelly stuff).

 So, between 6 of us, we can use the meat as not much meat on each deer. I have 3 freezers, for example as well so will last a while.

ATB,

Scrummy

LOL Craig. I just laughed and said right. I figured she was just used to pinky fingering her G spot.

I think Muntjy’s only weigh about 40-50 pounds.

Sounds like Mike had a busy weekend. He's got a lot of deer to dress.

Good weekend had. 6 shooters and 51 deer in total. 3 roe deer, 3 fallow and the remainder muntjac.

5 muntjac was my personal tally. Very happy with the on game performance of my 7x64 with the 139 GMX and the 257 Roberts 100gr Nosler E-Tips.
