At what age would people cull a good buck.
I have a very good Roe which I know is at least 5 years old and is carrying an outstanding six point head which I think could be a silver.
His male offspring all seem to get passed on his genes with regards to head quality and show nice well conformed six points even as yearlings, though obviously small.
He is holding a decent territory of a number of small plantations and a mature wood of some size aswell.
The thing which worries me is a successor to his throne, one of last years was an RTA victim last week, another was shot over the boundary two weeks ago, I shot a good three year old last year because he was blind in one eye and a couple of 2/3 year old who were showing promise have vanished.
My thought was to take him after the rut this year as he maybe older than I think but I would be interested in members opinions.
