I'd be interested to hear of the latest in the year that other members have come across roe bucks in velvet?
I accounted for this little fella last Friday, June 20th. A poor little specimen, it took me some time to confirm him as a buck.
His rear legs showed sign of injury, presumably a result of contact with wire and perhaps the reason for his poor condition. The leg in the pic was showing bone, although clean and well on its way to healing up. He was moving freely before the shot and gave no indication of being injured.
