Thread: dropping their antlers?

    dropping their antlers?

    I went for an early morning walk and ended up watching a family of 4 roe in a crop paddock for an hour or so. The buck only had one antler - are they dropping now?

    Look where he is jumping in and out the field as the jarring from landing usually knocks them off, and you may find his casts, have found a few at fences where they are jumping in and out.

    Thanks Moose. I did wonder if I could find them but thought it would be like trying to find the proverbial needle.
    I'll have a look along the fence line next time.

    Shot a buck 3 weeks ago that had cast both. Was an old boy in slightly poor condition, but still thought that was early for both to have fell.
