I know this will probably be different for different areas of the country but when is it normal for red stags to come into hard antler. There are three stags all 12 pointers causing a lot of damage to a field and the farmer wants them gone. If any of them were young I would have no problem trying to move them on by taking the young out but as they are like this seems a shame to cull whilst still in velvet as well as this it would be my first stag so would be for the wall.
I don't want to put it off much longer as he may get someone else in.
this video shows one of them from a couple of weeks ago, have another with all three but on my ipad which is at home.
