      He is in Somerset. They have rabbits as big as sows and hens the size of cows there, so why not badgers with antlers?

        Hi Willow,

        I know a Deer Farm on the Devon/Cornwall border, would there be any in your area that can help. :)

            You'd be more that welcome to appear here come around January armed with a 2 2 rifle. Sure you could get what you want then!

              Thanks all, but Willow is a vegetarian.

              She's made 3 very convincing sets out of tin foil & papier maché.

              She's at the Shambala festival with her big Sis now.

              Of course, Dad's not worried at all [​IMG]

                Of course you're not worried Zigs, just like I'm not when my youngest is bungee jumping, throwing herself off mountains and recently being side-swiped by an artic in her driving school car. :heehee: Just a few more grey hairs added and blood pressure up a bit. :)

                She'll be fine....... well that's what I try to tell myself! ;)

                  Just like me then as I chat to daughter while she is battling her way around the M25 in an artic lorry, hearing her yelling as some old bugg... wearing a flat cap and driving a small car who decides he can't possibly be overtaken by a young woman driving a muckle great truck and cuts her up!!! How I wish she did something safer like being a secretary...well maybe not she certainly sees life doing the job she does and very seldom is bored. I'd quite like bored tho.

                    Zigs and Silu, I don't think they realise just how much we suffer as parents! :doh:My daughter was side swiped by one of those great big American/Canadian artics the week before last, they call them semi's. It's written off the passenger side of her car, about £5000/6000 of damage, it could have been so much worse. These kids of ours scare the life out of us don't they?
