    Roe Buck Season 2011

    Hello All,

    Here are my bucks for this season minus around 4/5 that were small murder bucks or in velvet.

    How did everyone else get on? I found that the quality of the bucks in my parts were not as good as 2010 any one else find the same???

    Well done Rob, quite a collection there!

    I only took 3 bucks this season due to being poorly, two scrappy little things and one decent one (my reward for 3 years of removing just the gimpy ones! )

    only had a handful myself, but got my biggest 6 pointer to date, and my biggest red stag to date (very large 8 pointer) - so no matter what, despite the numbers, GREAT season

    Looks like somebody has stocked up on some meat! Congrats on the harvest. Do you guys have any programs where you can donate venison to the homeless? I usually donate a couple of deer a year to the program.

    Yes it's called poaching!

    Sorry I couldn't help myself.

    Hi UTGrad. The short answer to your question is... not really. However, venison can be sold in the UK and there are specialist game-dealers who trade in it, buying wholesale then passing it into the food chain.

    Maybe you should also know that there are various arrangements whereby you might shoot deer in the UK.... Most land in the UK is owned by people other than the nation and landowners have the right to take (shoot) deer on their own land (such "sporting" rights are enshrined in law), subject to further laws governing seasons and equipment used and so forth. Landowners taking deer on their own land can then either keep and use or sell or otherwise dispose of the meat as they choose, broadly speaking that is. We have health and hygiene regulations regarding meat entering the food chain... as well. Now, if you're not a landowner and you want to shoot deer the options are that you pay or otherwise get permission to shoot on a landowner's land and the arrangements regarding the meat can then vary. For instance, if you lease a block (or blocks) of land on an annual basis and shoot unaccompanied, typically you'd get the carcases as part of the deal. However, if you pay by the day (or per stalking session, as the case may be) and are accompanied by a professional stalker, usually the land owner, or occasionally any other person to whom the sporting rights might be sub-let, would keep the carcases but, very often, you might be allowed to buy what you've shot in that last way, at game dealer's prices.

    The above is a brief and perhaps oversimplified picture but I hope it gives you a bit more info.

    Had 23 bucks and only one of medal quality,a nice gold that scored 147.Plenty of others with long nice heeds,but didnt have the weight on them and im presuming it was due to another bad winter.The beasts themselves were in good strip but maybe lacking good scoff during antler growth affected antler quality.
