Well, on Saturday I had the pleasure of guiding a good mate of mine onto a roe buck after he took me stalking on his ground last year. (We were hoping for fallow but thet were a no show).



Not a trophy in the classic sense but a good animal to take out and remove from the gene pool. This type of roe buck is called a murder buck due to the damage the antlers do to other roe deer when fighting.

ATB,

Scrummy

the lack of trophy antlers wont have anything to do with the delicious steaks it will provide.

He might be better for the slow cooker or sausages / burgers on the BBQ if we get any more summer. Whatever he will be good eating!

Interestingly my mate is thinking of turning them into bottle openers (He has a rather nice warthog tusk knife as well)

Roe deer is one of most popular hunting game species in Europe!
Well developed roe is six pointer.

The roe spiker buck, seen above is best to be taken before summer rut.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
