Thread: First clean buck of 2012

    First clean buck of 2012

    Out and about today I spotted three roe grazing on one of the few patches of corn showing through the snow stopping for a more detailed look the young buck showed a nice head with clean antlers, later today I also saw another three the buck in that group was clearly still in full velvet.
    Seems very early to see a clean buck but I have never kept a note in previous years what do others think.

    It is very early indeed but i spoke to a chap today who said he saw a buck that was definitely cleaning its antlers. I expect to get some more growth on my bucks i hope they don't clean till the middle of march.

    The first grainy picture was a month ago but the last one was the cold spell last year. Its the same area.

    Very nice pic 6pointer, worthy of a painting based on the snow and sharpness of the deer
