I'm responsible for the deer management of my girlfriends family farm. As it's the rut for roe bucks,I' like to make sure that future generations of deer in the area come from "good stock". I'll be looking out for bucks with a stagger,or affected gait,naturally,Also I'll be observing their antlers to ensure they dont have deformities, What I need to know in detail is which bucks need to be culled in order of priority?
I anticipate that I'll be out with the binoculars first to find a suitable "cull beast" So advice would be gratefully recieved. -D.
