Thread: Sometimes we get real monsters.

  1. #1

    Sometimes we get real monsters.

    I have been stalking the best part of my life and have been very lucky with the beasts I have shot.
    I have had some great trophey animals, but they have in the main been very even antlered, well the bigger ones have, until now.
    In the past two seasons I have been lucky to get to huge roe both malforms and I have mounted them, sods law that I over boiled, but thats another story.
    I have tried my best to get the best photographs, but its difficult.
    Starting with this years:

    Both have at least 10 points and are the heaviest roe heads I have personaly seen.
    I will take the memory of these everywhere, this and the next life!

    Wow. In the first one, what are the splits to the skull under the antlers? Looks like his head is falling apart? Massive bucks, well done!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    The skull close to the antlers looks porus and even after peroxide treatment still remains stained.

    Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    Any further info? Both from the same ground? What type of terrain? Any theory on the malformations? Were they known to you or strangers?

    Apologies for all of the questions but I love interesting roe heads!

    Imagine the damage that first one could do with that third antler in a fight with another buck. Am I right in thinking its a true third antler with its own separate coronet?

    So, some more information and answers.
    Both deer were know and had been watched for a lot of years and the one shot this year was deemed suitable to shoot 3 years ago, but avoided a shot until this year when he was going daft and blind.
    The three antlered buck has three pedicals/coronets and has had this formation for a numer of years, infact both deer have carried their unusual headsets for some years.
    Both of the Bucks had far bigger antlers in years past and have been shot as they were going back and both have left plenty of offspring..
    Both were shot on fertile mixed arable/grass farmland with no local woodland! and I have the proudly displaid on my lounge wall.

    Measurements are as follows for the three antlered buck: looking at it from front left 24 cm, right 27cm, third 15cm, span 10 cm, longnose cut and 90 days drying, weight 610grams.
    The one shot last season: left 31cm, right 33cm, span 10cm, weight uncut 783grams.

    Hope that answers any questions.
