  • Highly unlikely. It'll probably be in somebody's freezer by now.

  • I know what you're thinking Rebecca but it's not recommended to eat road killed venison as the guts are likely to have contaminated the venison! Sorry to disappoint.

  • There seems to be an unprecedented carnage of deer on the roads I have been driving on across the region these last few weeks. The time of year and the harvesting of the last of the beet is a contributory factor of course .It is recognised that deer numbers are at an all time high, so would it be too much to expect NCC to install more deer posts beside roads? Hitting a muntjac is one thing, but a roe or red deer is quite another and we are facing the risk everywhere in the county now, not just the Thetford Chase area as was the case twenty or so years ago. Of course we should all be driving at a speed where we can brake if something is in the road, but when that something jumps down into the road from a bank top or dashes across very fast-not easy.
