Today, a friend of mine brought a few Fallow to my chiller and stated that one was quite small. He wasn't kidding! It weighed 10kg (22lb) exactly on the hook! I'm thinking that can't have been born too long ago? It was fine in every other respect, just tiny. Could maybe be the offspring of a fawn covered in its first year?
Conversely, another friend shot the biggest Muntjac doe I've ever heard of a couple of weeks ago. She weighed 35.2lb head and legs off!
Had a thick layer of fat like an Autumn lamb. Not what you'd expect after a long cold winter. I reckon someone must have been feeding it doughnuts and cakes??
