    Woburn Abbey's Big Boy

    Anyone else surprised to learn from countryfile that Woburn have the stag (Big Boy)with most points(40) still alive? even though he is not their oldest Stud Stag.
    i knew they held some superb Gold/World records but thought that 32 points was their max. i was also surprised to hear that NZ holds the record for most points on a wild beast. Can this be confirmed by any of the Pro's here?

    Just out of curiosity what trophies do you gents have on your walls (red only) that are up there with the big guns? and what areas (geographical) and dates would these trophies have come from. interested to see any big differences between park and wild regarding antler weight and size

    I believe Furzeland's Jamie still holds the record posthumously ...

    I have been told (by a Kiwi) that there is a practice in NZ where they nick the growing velvet antlers with a blade to induce "more points"

    Peel Forest is a spectacle to behold, I was fortunate enough to be at a Trophy Sale back in 2004, having come off a season at Atholl it was like walking into the deer equivalent of Jurassic Park!
