I'm unlikely to be free to go to hudds at easter, but i'm in the black country and gloucestershire is an easy drive, i expect we could work something out meeting wise and swapsie wise. Burying the skull would probably do it, it's the most neighbour friendly way.


The only issue is the dogs mate might have to look at alternatives if you have any, as to the skin what would I need to do? the last one I scraped off the fat and salted it but it reeked?

I agree with all you said, however looking at the eyes can indicate chronic diseased state of the animal. Im not experienced enough to be foolproof, but the old fellas I learned from would choose not to harvest the meat based on the eyes.

I do the road kill Forest Of Dean hogs like this.


Take the meat from the outside without entering the gut zone.

Search no gut deer on YouTube. I'll fix vid.

I think it is the photo mate, the other half found it and was trying to "woman up" in her own words to brng it back, there is blood in the mouth so maybe took a knock but not hard enough to show as was in the middle of the road?

If unsure it will get buried not eaten.

Do you have a dog? Put it in front of your dog, and if your dog doesn't even want to eat it, then you shouldn't eat it. But if it is trying to eat it, then bring it in.

Make sure the stomach hasn't exploded. And make sure it isn't truly beaten up to a pulp. No broken ribs. If you do that then you should be fine.

Don't feel sorry for it, it's an invasive species eating the forest, nonspecific is doing his civic duty eating the monster.

Roads are genociding critters world wide, I'm sorry about that.

I have a Japanese Akita mate it would eat anything it couldn't hump!

It looks like it has been hit but no evidence of injury other than blood in the mouth and the fact that it is dead, just waiting for my OH's son to get back as he has more experience with roadkill than me.

The Muntjac are successful because they're small enough to hide in any small undergrowth. I've seen them running guiltily through built-up areas. They damage the trees and more.

Nightingale heading to extinction

Britain's most celebrated songbird, the nightingale, will be extinct within 30 years, scientists have warned.

Populations of the bird, which has been an inspiration for generations of poets and romantics, have crashed by more than 90 per cent in the last 40 years.

According to a study by the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), the species is on course to vanish completely from the UK.

The findings mean the bird will be upgraded to "red status" - signifying the highest possible degree of conservation concern.

Its decline has been blamed on the explosion in the muntjac deer population, which has drastically reduced the availability of the bird's favoured habitat in woodland undergrowth.


It is absurd. We have a random culling method that just catches the occasional random critter.

We know that but try telling our friends over the pond that mate.

Also I would be wary of hitting a munty at any distance with a 12 bore when a handy swipe with a door would be a lot less messy.

Hey thats a great idea, good info to have thanks

Possible dumb question here but I have a spare fridge. If the munty is good and I get it gutted, bled and skinned could I hang it in the fridge(yes it would fit)

I have always had carcasses ready hung before apart from a red deer that I just skinned and butchered?

You could bury it under a slab but your dogs would likely still go nuts.. could put the head in a stream under some rocks and let micro critters strip it, but if it's quiet there then other beasties will likely take ut away. Other options involve more work on your part and annoying neighbours... if you can't do it in a way that doesnt inconvenience you then not to worry, but the offer stands if it's reasonably stripped etc

Well thats different. I support culling, maintaining species. Maybe you guys could import wolves or something, lol. Without top predators a biological system can't thrive.

As far as randomness, 'civilization' is guaranteeing the destruction of animal habitat, hard for me to blame the animals for that.

So the little bugger was pretty busted up inside but healthy.

Managed to keep the haunches and a front leg and the fillets plus some scraps.

Pics to follow.
