    I have shot a few roe over the years with these small tusks.
    They have always been in the position of canine teeth and not always in pairs, some roe having only one.
    They are small (10-15mm long) and quite fine and sharp.The visble crown showing from the gum is sometimes only a few mm long and they can be overlooked.
    I do not always remember to look for them and I suspect they are more common than one would think. I have found them in relatively young animals too both bucks and does.
    Cheers.

    Do you mean like this?





    The phots are from a buck I shot a couple of years ago. It's the first and -to date -only one I've shot that had canines but, as Schiehallion said, they are probably more common than we think.

    I lent the head to a friendly vet who was interested in deer. Next time I see him I'll see if he still has it.

    Not uncommon have shot quite a few over the years , seems to be more prominent in certain areas, so wonder if genetics may be involved, in one area I used to have, would cull five or six every year out of a cull of thirty bucks.

    Hi Rob,

    I can remember an articles in 'Stalking Magazine' years back about a guy shooting roebucks with canines and were all from the same area, as bogtrotter says may be a genetic thing keep an eye out for them now, it was Northern Scotland, but can't remember where, i will try and dig out the mag to see where.

    I have diligently checked every buck since reading that article, but have never found any

    Where was yours shot, as so far, all the other guys that have shot bucks with tusks are from Scotland, just wondering if it was peculiar to Scottish Roe.
