Um.

Yesterday.

Unspecified forest, County Wicklow.

A comfy high chair shooting platform used to kill wild deer.

According to the Irish Times last year: ‘Wicklow accounts for over a third of all deer shot by licensed hunters in Ireland in the last hunting season, and a high concentration of deer in certain areas has been linked to outbreaks of TB.’

The deer hunting season began on September 1.

“Fallow deer graze as the long grass which has been cut and bailed near the Papal Cross. Since the 1970s with the removal of hay these grasslands has been improving. Extensive open areas of grassland such as the ‘Fifteen Acres ‘ provide nesting sites for skylark. Grasslands which are remote from the main thoroughfares, are not cut and thus provide food and shelter for invertebrates and cover for small animals….”
