Thread: Worth waiting for....

    Worth waiting for....

    After five trips to Scotland and five blanks, two on the new ground, it was sixth time lucky. I went up for two days last week and did not see a buck until the last evening, this unfortunate fellow:

    He was blind in one eye, (the one facing away from me!) and has seven good points. He was out on open sheep walk with a single kid, no sign of mum, and dropped on the spot to an 80 yard engine room shot.

    Saw plenty of does this time, all with young, one had triplets. Hopefully a few of the kids I saw were fathered by this chap

    What kind of terrain does it come off
    He was near a big block of commercial forestry. Further down the hill is some deciduous woodland and improved gassland but the majority of the ground is white grass/ braken/ heather.

    That's a lovely animal, well done.

    Do you think he picked up the blind eye rutting? was it scarred or more of a cataratct?

    This is another post about a buck with eye damage after or during the rut.
    Is this a common thing?
    Do they go that crazy when the hormones flow?
    Any pictures?

    I'll bet the teeth were worn well down . Congratulations on a worthy cull buck and a cracking trophy!

    The eye was cloudy all the way across, looked like a cataract to me. No sign of recent damage.
