It sometimes works....

    Bumble, drive out of Holmesfield towards Hathersage, once you've taken the exit near the Peacock you'll find them around there. They are often seen near the old unused reservoir in autumn. Muntjac have been seen around Dronfield lately as have roe.
    Some reds in the western Peaks are also thought to originate from Lyme Park and the quite long established wild population on The Roches near Leek. I've stalked them not far from Bosley and the stags include some very big boys. I've also seen a red stag slot in Monsal Dale on the Cressbrook & Litton water.

    I believe that they're now thought to have died out.
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    Roebuck. He'll be pumped full of testosterone at this time of year as they start rutting around now. He's probably trying to figure out if he should fight you or summat else...
