Just a quick one to who might be interested.
Was checking on our red heard we keep at the week end & one thing struck me as odd about one of the stags I noticed it in his 1st year of growing but took no real interest in it
We have about 120 or so reds, among them about 10 stags (not counting this years calves) 1 of the stags now 2 years old & a very inquisitive nature about him ( He would give me a butt up the arse if i gave him half a chance) Hes usually the 1st in the potato trailer the 1st to the gate in fact the 1st to check anything new out thats put into the paddock. (i have taken quite a liking to this particular stag because of his character so he will stay in the heard as long as i can possibly keep him along with the other "not to be shot" deer) This particular stag has a very light face, almost white to look at.
Has anyone come across this in stags they have shot in the past Ive shot quite a few red stags in norfolk, somerset & devon & can honestly say ive not noticed this in any ive seen in the wild.
