I was out walking the dogs this morning before work (0430 hrs) in an area where I see the odd couple of roe quite often. The area is not shot in any way and I think the most management done in the area by council contractors is a bit of tree pruning and path clearing.
This morning my dogs disturbed a buck that was still in full velvet and full winter coat. From what I saw I would say 4-6 pointer and appeared in fair condition.
I thought they would be clear of velvet now and at least started shedding that winter coat? I've only seen clear bucks for weeks now.
What are you seeng? Any as above?
