Feeding release pens.

Post by Dartmoordog » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:43 pm

A question for the Gamekeepers out there: Do you feed the release pens and keep the fencers on all through the season?

I am not a gamekeeper, but do help out with the feeding and run the beating line.

Cheers.

Yep, that is the big question. Two of our drives take in the woodland that holds the pens, I just think a little sanctuary until the beginning of December with some food may not be a bad idea. But I certainly get where you are coming from.

Thanks.
