Thread: couple of roe this morning

  1. #1

    couple of roe this morning

    Got up at half six this morning for a bit of stalking, and despite the wind doing it's best to blow me over, I managed to get a doe and one of last years young.

    Despite having a couple of young inside her and a tush, the doe had bumps on her head the same size as a young buck I saw nearby.

    Also as you can hopefully just make out on the attached photo she appears to have had a let off with another shooter in the past, there is a line right along her back where there is no hair as if a bullet has skimmed it!

    On the plus side, I actually remembered for once to bring a funnel and empty bottle out with me to collect some blood for training!

    Well done mate, having also been out this morning and got soaked i feel even worse seeing those two. That's before i even mention the quality of that photo mate.
    Well done all round though, not sure where you are but I'd swear that if its Scotland that doe was in a recent video lol and that's why it has no hair on its back .

    I quite often see does with bumps - never had one with antlers tho

    The crease isn't a score from a fence or some such?

    Ill eat the smaller one as I have no venison in the freezer at the moment, but ill sell the larger one as i'm a licensed venison dealer and the money can go towards my permission fee which is due soon.

    Definately say it was a fence or tree branch,seriously a lottery shot for the back to be so straight for no wound from a bullet,interesting tho.
