    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,

    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)

    Been watching a few Roe deer hunting vids lately. Great little animals, pity none were introduced to NZ.

    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.
