After seeing this topic in Diseases in Deer and related matters
i hav a couple of questions, as this quite interests me
In which area was the stag shot (not on about bullet placement or exact location)??
Approx how old was the stag as this might answer my next question ??
Why does losing such a limb where the injury has actually healed up, caused or going to cause such abnormalities to antler growth year after year??
as surely now the wound has healed any hormonal inbalance also should be back to norm as the body is not fighting against itself any more
and just one more at the mo
would this cause any potential probs in future breeding if it was still alive, as i hav seen and shot many Fallow and Muntjac Does with such limb loss that hav been heavy in young which seemed to be in good condition with a healthy looking feotus
or have produced healthing looking young to which seemed to hav or had no adversed side affects to being produced by a mother with such defects...
