Thread: Roe heads

  1. #1

    Roe heads

    What are they like this year.
    I have very few "culls" as such (i.e. prickets), even most yearlings are 6 point though very light and short heads but non the less 6. These can usually be x4 but this year there are next to nil prickets or x4.
    Is this a local thing with us are are your youngsters doing well?
    We are as you know sat on chalk here but this year is without doubt exceptional.
    Now killing nearly 50 bucks since April 1st and seeing many more what haven't been safe or twigged us aproaching I have seen enough to make the statement above.
    feedback please.

    Having a good season here but not like you 2, plenty of mature bucks and some that look exceptional on the hoof, also the usual spread of of 4 pointers and spikers.

    ive only shot 1 youngster myself this year but he was a small 6 pointer. the other bucks have all been old bucks going back but again all six pointers. I have'nt seen any this year with the wow factor, so im being selective
