Transcript of Deer Hunting

Deer Exploration Teagon and Carter Deer hunting is survival hunting or sport hunting for deer, which dates back to tens of thousands of years. There are numerous types of deer throughout the world that are hunted. Survival Or Sport? 2013 Bow The deer most sought after in North America, east of the Rocky Mountains, is the white-tailed deer. West of the Rockies, the mule deer is the dominant deer species. Blacktail deer are dominant along the west coast (west of the Cascade Range) from Northern California to British Columbia. The most notable differences between these deer, other than distribution, are the differences in ears, tail, antler shape (the way they each fork), and body size.[citation needed] North America Hunting The mule deer's ears are proportionally longer than the ears of a white-tailed deer, they also have different color skin and brighter faces and resemble that of a mule. Mule deer have a black-tipped tail which is proportionally smaller than that of the white-tailed deer. Buck deer of both species sprout antlers; the antlers of the mule deer branch and rebranch forming a series of Y shapes, while white-tailed bucks typically have one main beam with several tines sprouting from it. White-tailed bucks are slightly smaller than mule deer bucks. Both of the species lose their antlers in January, and regrow the antlers during the following summer beginning in June. Velvet from the antlers are shed in August and September. Each buck normally gets larger each year as long as good food sources are present. Antler growth depends on food sources. If food is not good one year, antlers will be smaller. Many deer do not reach their full potential due to getting hit by automobiles, also known as road kills. Mule and White Tailed Deer here are six species of deer in the UK : red deer, roe deer, fallow deer, Sika deer, muntjac deer, and Chinese water deer, as well as hybrids of these deer. All are hunted to a degree reflecting their relative population either as sport or for the purposes of culling. Closed seasons for deer vary by species.[1] The practice of declaring a closed season in England dates back to medieval times, when it was called fence month and commonly lasted from June 9 to July 9, though the actual dates varied.[2] It is illegal to use bows to hunt any wild animal in the UK under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

UK deer stalkers, if supplying venison for public consumption, are required to hold a DSC1 (Deer Stalking Certificate 1) which incorporates meat handling and hygiene together with disease identification. Mainly a theory based course it does also test the stalkers deer identification and shooting ability. The more difficult DSC2 is the practical to the DSC1 requiring three kills, a post-mortem "gralloch" including examination of the animal's lymphatic system and a check for notifiable diseases. The stalker must put together a comprehensive portfolio of each stalk signed off by an "Approved Witness".[3]

"Deer stalking" is widely used among British and Irish sportsmen to signify almost all forms of sporting deer shooting, but classically refers to hunting red deer, usually accompanied by a ghillie who knows the estate. This can involve long stretches of crawling across coverlesss moorland to get close enough to the nervous deer to use a rifle. Owners of estates can derive good incomes from charging for the right to hunt and providing a ghillie, especially in the Scottish Highlands. In Europe deer are more often hunted in forests, and payment to the owners is often required. In North American sporting usage "deer hunting" is the term used, and typically involves a small group of hunters in wooded country, without payment. In Britain and Ireland "deer hunting" has historically been reserved exclusively for the sporting pursuit of deer with scent-seeking hounds ("stag hounds"), with unarmed followers typically on horseback. United Kingdom Deer Hunting In Australia, there are six species of deer that are available to hunt. These are Fallow deer, Sambar, Red deer, Rusa, Chital, and Hog deer.[4]

Deer were first introduced to Australia between 1800 and 1803.[5] All states and territories have populations of deer including many coastal islands. Deer hunting in Australia is mostly practiced on the eastern side of the country. Hunting access varies from state-to-state with varying classifications from pest species to game animal with some species afforded the protection of hunting seasons and a requirement for a Game Hunting permit or license. In NSW, the licensing system is regulated by the statutory authority Game Council NSW.

The sport is aided by the Australian Deer Association, which handles hunter education, lobbying on behalf of the industry, and maintains the Australian Antlered Trophy Register. Australia Deer Hunting
