Please note that Bob McComb (well known deer expert) is penciled in to give a talk on deer behaviour and how to hunt them at this meeting.

I will confirm early next week.

Big thanks to the committee for getting Bob to attend. What an intersting man, I don't think there is anything he doesn't know about deer.

I certainly walked away with a lot of useful information.

Accolades to the Committee for organising Bob McComb and 11th hour change of venue for the meeting.

There were a few things had wrong with Fallow Deer regarding some of their behavioural traits.  The biological proposal to reduce the Sambar population in Victoria after the numbers explosion is a concern.  Bob reported Sambar numbers in Victoria to be estimated at 800K to 1M in 2017, with 90K taken each year.  In the mid 80's the estimated number of Sambar in Victoria was 85K to 100K!
