Black fallow.

Fallow come in a variety of colours. Oursin SA which I hunt are the menil or prettiest colouring of the white dots and a reddish/russet colour, similar to a chital deer. Then you get the blacks, browns, and whites. Another colouring as well I forget ???

We were trying to shoot out the other colours, mostly browns, which had got into the local herd to keep it pure menil.

Some hunters aim for a grandslam of a trophy example of each colour.

Polar bear shot and killed in North Iceland

Photo: Iceland Monitor/Björn Jóhann

An adolescent female polar bear which had found its way to North Iceland and got within 500 metres of an inhabited farm was shot and killed late last night.

Locals spotted the animal around 10pm and informed police. As dictated by official Icelandic procedures for such cases, a marksman was dispatched to gun down the polar bear.

The bear was spotted by Egill Bjarnason, who was riding his horse close to his home farm of Hvalnes, some 40km from the North Iceland town of Sauđárkrókur. People in nearby farms were informed of the sighting and advised to remain indoors while the operation to kill the animal was under way.

Egill and his father Bjarni were joined by experienced marksman Jón Sigurjónsson, who delivered a fatal shot straight into the animal’s heart from an estimated distance of 130 metres, some two hours after the first sighting.

The carcass was taken by tractor to the farm, where locals gathered to catch a glimpse of the dead polar bear.

This is the third confirmed sighting of a polar bear in this part of Iceland, the previous two being in 2008. Sea currents are reportedly strong in this area and it is difficult to tell when the animal reached land.

According to Egill, as soon as he saw the bear, he was in no doubt that it need to be killed immediately, given how close it was to the farm of Hvalnes where children had been playing. It was also important not to allow the bear to get back to the sea, where it would be difficult to locate it again.

The carcass – that of a large adolescent female polar bear – will now be examined by staff from the Icelandic Institute of Natural History and the Environment Agency of Iceland.

Locals say the bear will probably be stuffed and displayed in a museum."

Interesting on how different cultures and parts of the world handle things. "Experienced Marksman" is curious to me---does this mean that in Iceland most or many do not have their own weapons and/or don't do much hunting? Is the "experienced marksman" paid by the government to take care of such occasions?

the adder is the only poisonous snake in europe north of the alpes. you can find it in scandinavia farther north than the polar circle. in central europe its very rare today because of the destruction of its former habitat and the change into farmland.
I found it now the first time in jutland behind the dunes in dry and sunny heathland.




dangerous for little children and curious young dogs

Thanks for posting Lancaster.

A good looking snake. I learned a bit too, thanks to your post. I didn't think there would be any snakes anywhere near the Arctic Circle.

I note they are protected in some countries, useful animals!!!!!! We get along fine here in my country without any snakes or other nasties that bite and or are poisonous. Nice to be able to walk, sit, crawl and put your hands anywhere you like in our bush without worrying about something latching on and potentially killing you.
The only snake I would have time for is a very dead one, even then better off not seeing any alive or dead.

roebuck season starting very complicated here this year, very dry and sometimes extreme hot so roe was sometimes realy invisible, this combined with lots of work and having no time.

there where not even midges, like holiday

Waidmannsheil Lancaster.

In Romania I "broiled". Not hot by Australian standards but also humid. Temps around 30 deg C. Rained most evenings or afternoons.

Saw one fine roebuck from a train and another roe from a car. Took some photos of that one. Maybe two others from a train.

Well done on your roebuck.

Waidmannsdank

I heard it also from a friend in denmark, the unusual dry and hot summer in norther europe make the roe nocturnal.
it was the very first buck I see since the season started, so surprised he realy came out in my direction don't know if I had to shoot but it was "my" buck.
the hole situation had something unreal!
