Guests on our fields
This pictures from winter 2006 shows roe deers on one of our fields with winter rape seed. Here I am standing on my farm yard app. 100 meters from the roe deers.

Maybe the traces were made by this hare... Picture taken from our living room window!

Re: Guests on our fields
Do you hunt the deer Lennart? Here we have fallow deer & they can be a big problem in crops. The government wildlife agency issues permits for farmers to shoot a certain amount, to protect their crops.

Especially bad in a year like this when it has been so dry (less food for them in the bush).

Last pic from winter 2006 - nice ice taps hanging from the roof of the former milk machine room, now used as storage for chemical products.

Tas: Yes, we hunt both roe deers and hare, and wild goose, pidgeons, ducks and more.

We have rules that stipulates what, when and how you can hunt. This rules gives also farmers who have problems with animals in the crops the right to hunt, for some animals without permission, others you have to get permission to hunt, some you never are allowed to hunt, but then you insted can get money from the state covering the damage.

Re: Guests on our fields
here in Holland you have to do a hunting-course to get a permit for hunting. I started with this course in November, and hopefuly I'll get my permit in May. Were I live, in the south of Holland, we also have roe-deer, and we also get more and more wild pigs. In spring we always have much damage from the hare in our early cabbage-crop.

Re: Guests on our fields
Someone maybe think this is not farm related, but here in Sweden it is common that farmers are hunters. Here is a picture from 2006 showing some neighbours and guests when me hunted on 5 nearby laying farms...

This after the hunt ended, 10 hunters got one roe-deer and 4 hares (right ending?). It is hard to get the roe-deers on our plain fields, we cant use bullet due to safety, and hail need short distance, and roe-deers have good sight!

Joep: We also ned to get a cource and a "hunters exam", we also have very hard weapons regulations.

The wild pigs is also more and more spread here in Sweden. We are lucky, yet they havent invaded our plain area at the coast, but only some 10 km into the land they are (in the border between forrest and arable land).

Re: Guests on our fields
Why do you shoot the roe-deeres with a shotgun? You use a "Brenneke" cartridge to shoot them? In Holland it's not allowed to shoot them with a shotgun, we use rifles with at least a caliber .222. We may shoot just a couple deeres a year, in spring they count the roe-deeres in a area, and then they can count how many deeres they may shoot. But in our area we may shoot all the wild pigs, because they may not be there in this area, to much farm with pigs and to many roads! Do you also have wolfs in your area?

Re: Guests on our fields
We are allowed to shoot roe-deers with hails US 1, 3 and 5, not brenneke, but only winter hunt with following dogs or field hunt. At autuum when we hunt alone without dogs we must have rifles like you, min cal. 222.

We don't have any wolfs yet were we live, thanks god! :-)

If the wolfs come to our area it will be a disaster for our cattle and sheeps! :-(:-(:-(:-(
