    Did post this thread in the past but was lost with the AHF glitch.
    We in Africa are not so informed when it comes to animals that shed their horns (antlers)! So for me and fallow African hunters it is very interesting. Only problem with South African Fallow Deer is that the gene pool is very restricted and not nearly the same quality then Europe. But local hunters only mind the Rowland Ward book so only length is important. No palm or time formation is taken into account. For me it is all about balance. Something of everything. I am still in the process of bringing in quality gene pool material. Nature conservation how ever has restricted all movement of exotic animals which retards the whole process. But there are many ways to kill a cat. Here are some picks.

    Andries you just got me thinking. If you can get Rhinos to shed their horns annually you could really make money.

    You have to have balance for good trophies. Good for you.
    They should be hardening up soon.

    Good luck with the program.
