    Fighting Bucks

    Attachment 6314Attachment 6313Attachment 6311Attachment 6309Attachment 6308Well i was out for another outing this morning and i came across a malform Roe buck fighting a nice six pointer im not talking play fighting they were full on trying to kill each other so i shot the malform as he didn't look to be doing very well all hunched up ! The second six pointer ran of into next field and fell to my second shot as the farmers complaining about deer numbers otherwise id have left him !

    Has anyone else seen bucks fighting like this so early on i usually only see this sort of aggression a lot later on ?

    Not sure why the first roe buck had malformed antlers he was old but in good health !

    Yeah its nice to watch them play fighting early on when their finding new territories but like i said these to were definitely trying to kill one and other i usually only see this happening just before or during the rut when fighting over females !

    often I skin a yearling now and his arse is full of holes.
    Don't think he would call that play.

    On one piece of ground for two years on the trot i was coming across half dead roe bucks when skinned they looked like they had been stabbed to death you could walk upto them and touch them with ya sticks ! On August of the second year i found the culprit a large buck with two straight points it took me three attempts to get him but i did then the following year i shot a second buck with the same two straight points on its head i believe their called murder bucks prob the offspring from the first ive not come across another one since on this piece of ground !
