Sir: The recent "bloody revenge" for the stag hunt ban on National Trust property (report, 25 November) clearly proves what the anti-blood sports lobby have claimed all along. That the culling of wild stag by gun is more efficient, more economic and more humane than hunting with dogs ever was. The venison sold as a result will be both nutritious and free from the toxins produced by a wild mammal when hunted to the point of exhaustion by hounds. I look forward to Mike Foster's Bill against hunting with dogs receiving a fair reading today.
