I was interested to see that in the Shooting Times list of other species published today a silver medal fallow buck was recorded from Cheshire. The interest is that Cheshire is actually pretty clear of deer for a county as large and rural as it is, save for some reds in the far east and munties along the Dane valley there's not too much in the way of a wild deer presence and I wasn't aware of any significant fallow.
It would be interesting to know where this animal came from, it was reported as "wild".
Apart from this animal there were another 9 wild fallow medals (including 5 golds) which is far more than usual. The biggest fallow was interesting as it came from Norfolk, again an area not normally associated with trophy wild fallow heads. There was also a cracking red from the Euston estate in Suffolk, a beautifully balanced 12 pointer that is far more attractive than the recent new record, 39 CWD golds and 44 gold medal munties.
