A goldmine of information on deer stalking, welfare and management


Deer give rise to many problems: in their management and conservation, connected with their annoying habit of eating trees and garden plants, and within the practical details of deerstalking. Queries frequently come direct to Richard Prior or through the Sporting Answers column in the Shooting Times. These are of great interest not only to the questioner but to managers and stalkers generally. The book is divided into headings for easy reference Antlers, Behaviour, Damage, Stalking kit etc. Each section is prefaced by an overview, often containing humorous examples of the interface between deer and man and how they might be overcome. Deer Problems contains practical, well-tested solutions which are backed by the author s lifetime experiences. More than that it is eminently readable just the thing to dip into by the fire at the end of a hard days stalking.
