Out this morning with my old man after does,spy a wee group of 3 appears to be 2 young does with their mum,perfect ,we shot the two young first,then got into a quick debate about mum,or dad!!!they were on the edge of a feild and after the first 2 shots the *doe*jumped into the edge of the wood and stood.
But as it ran I couldn't see its white tuft on it arse!!and could swear I could see budds on its head!!anyway my old man said no its definatly a doe and before I could says no wait a min ,bang !!no3 in bag!!!
Turns out he was right!!!the tuft of hair was very dark almost brown!!but there is 2 light markings where antlers should be with the slightest hint of antlers coming thruogh!!!!tell you what had me confused!!!
Is this common,we have had over 300 roe between us but never seen this before!!
