Thread Name: BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor
Subject: RE: BS: Englands Biggest Stag Shot on Exmoor
I think this might have been going to be Emperor's last successful rut (some other very large stags possibly his offspring have been noted) and maybe next year or the year after culling would have been merciful, but it is surely most unsporting to shoot during the rut. I'd be very upset myself if shot while on the job!

I tend to agree with Sugarfoot Jack above in both respects.
