Sad indeed . The last of famous Taxidermists in India --Van Ingen . Mysore . Closed down in the mid 1990's. Oh Yes. I am a dentist by profession but Wildlife photography is my hobby. I try and squeeze in a hunt whenever I go abroad for a holiday. We have a number of deer species in India. Sambhar deer is the largest deer found in India. We also have the Hangul in Kashmir. Which is a relative of the Red Stag. (I shot a Red Stag on my last trip to England) Apart from that we have Barking Deer(Muntjac), Swampdeer (Barasingha), Spotted Deer (Axis), Hog Deer,MuskDeer (in the Himalayas) and Manipuri Brow antler deer. The Spotted Deer is the most common of all deer species found here. I will start a new thread with some photos from the Indian jungles. Sept. 2013 I was hunting Roe deer in England when I also spotted some Barking deer (Muntjac) . it came as a pleasant surprise. I was told by my "Shikar guide" that these had been brought in from India about a 100 years ago. They had spread all over and could be hunted. What surprised me was that the Muntjac in England were very silent. In an Indian jungle , one would expect to hear a Muntjac even if one did not see it. My Guide told me that he had never heard a Muntjac. The call of a Muntjac resembles the bark of a dog. Hence the name "barking deer". I finally gathered that since there were NO predators for the Muntjac in England. It had no need to give out the alarm call. Over generations it had forgotten to Bark , unlike it's cousins back home in India.
