Thread: Malformed Roe from 2015

    Malformed Roe from 2015

    I have seen some excellent posts on the site regarding, mostly, Roe malforms from previous years.
    I thought it would be interesting to see some from 2015. So to kick off this thread I offer 2 Roe photos of animals I have shot this year in North Wiltshire.
    The Roe with the left antler going past the eye was healthy but the end of the antler was soft and rotting, so a good one to take out before he suffered.

    Great stuff. The right one has very similar make up to a malform head I have. The cic measurer suggested it was wire damage, which makes sense to me.

    I do like these threads.

    My contribution for this year though I did put a post up here on it after I shot it. Looks to have been hit pretty hard as it had a broken (and healed lower jaw).

    Hi Chris, yes it would have been nasty for the animal at the time. Perhaps clipped by a car or could it have been someone attempting a head shot with a small bullet, eg a .22 rimfire or air gun?

    That muntjac is something special. Was it possible to score it?

    Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch

    Hi Gents

    The Muntjac is currently on the Taxidermy bench, as soon as it is finished I will get it over to be measured, if that is at all possible with him being abnormal.
