Thread: Roe head span

  1. #1

    Roe head span

    Shot this buck first few days in April. An I still can't get over the span of it. Iv looked through loads of photos on here and can't see anything similar. Just wondered if anyone has any photos to share of heads with large spans. It measures a tad under 8" at it's widest point.http://i1256.photobucket.com/albums/...6/3e754d24.jpg

    The buck in this thread has a very wide span, maybe the poster will measure it for interest: http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...point-roe-buck

    Yes very nice, Heavy too. That's the only problem with mine it doesn't weigh very much. About 450 full scull.

    Having a quick look at our CIC records, it would appear that heads with an inside span of over 20cms are relatively rare. The widest we have measured in England in recent years is 22.2 cms, from Somerset where many of the wide heads come from. In 2008 a roe was shot in Perth with an inside span of 24.2cms
