I removed this one last week ...
When hunting roe in Denmark I was told a true "murder buck" to them has at least 8 inch spikes and they love to shoot such an animal over a nice six pointer.
I class any spiker buck as a danger (most are to unagressive though I have seen them stick does and each other), but as yearlings here can get to 6 points, they are classed as culls and shot on sight.
I have this little fella at home on the shelf,http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u.../IMG_00711.jpg

I used to see quite a few on one of my farms pluss a few malforms but selective culling seems to be working
Here's one I shot a few years ago,it's right antler was snapped right off,and possibly left in another Buck,so to me he was a 'Murder' Buck.............
Would'nt think any of these would be doing much scrapping. Maybe decent cull bucks but not really 'murder' bucks IMO.
