Thread: Roe Buck ear lengths

    Roe Buck ear lengths

    Last week we stalked into a superb roe buck but it was with the camera and I got some quite good pictues. He had a very good head but it was difficult to guauge the height of his antlers.

    Now I know that rabbits ears are neigh on a standard 3.5" so I thought if roe buck ears are also uniform it could be a handy way of getting a guide to roe buck antler length.

    I have measured the ear lengths of the two bucks (shot last Thursday) that I have in the compost heap at home and they were 120-130mm or pretty well 5"

    Could others post ear lengths so we might get a standardised lenght for future reference?

    Many thanks

    How are you measuring?
    1. Height of the tip of the ears above the head?
    2. Length of the ear from the middle of it's base to the tip?
