    Roe Head

    Is it possible to get a Roe head assessed if it was head shot? Do you need all the skull intack or an an allowance be made once the volume of the Antlers is known.

    If the top of the skull has held together ok you could try and cut it short nose and deduct the 90 grams.

    Whoever was silly enough to head shoot a potential medal class buck might end up with a ruined trophy.

    The top of the head is together with around a third of the top of the skull left. The silly sod who shot it was me but it was a mate of mine who let me shoot it who needed to thin a few deer out and the only possible shot was a frontal head shot .

    One shot here in Cumbria by a friend many years ago.
    It was measured by the old master, the late G.Kenneth Whitehead.
    It was high Gold but I do not remember the score.

    Stag, Is that the head that appeared in one or two of Prior's books with the size attributed to its owner frequenting cattle salt licks? It looks very similar.

    I have never read any of Richard Prior`s books but I suppose it may be the same one mentioned.
    This big laddie was shot at very last light, the stalker knew he had shot a buck but not the quality of it until he had it in hand.
    There was severe fraying damage on the area and any bucks seen were going to get flattened.
    The stalker was on his way home but stopped to glass that ground, the buck was seen and arrested.
    I remember some talk of mineral buckets for farm stock being in nearby fields.

    HWH.
