    Scottish roe bucks

    Evening all,

    i was wondering how everone was getting on with their buck culling up here in scotland, i can appreciate its early days but all ive seen is about 12 does on my permission of forestry so far in the last couple of weeks and not even a hint of one buck in sight.

    8 so far and good numbers showing with some decent looking heeds going about too.All of them in good strip possibly with the mild winter and grassed a nice one thats sitting at around 600g so could make gold.Weather is keech so not getting oot as much but hopefully it clears soon.

    Sinbad,

    is East Lancs in Scotland? just curious

    arh, just having a laugh.

    anyhow, I've seen a few, two good heads, but nothing 'special', all the yearlings around my (east) side of the Borders seem to still be in full velvet. Seen an older buck in velvet too...suss..

    Out 5 days of the season so far & have 13 bucks to show for it.

    Some are still in velet, but knocked out some of the crappy bucks regardless.

    Unfortunately so, all because the land owner is a complete w*nker!

    He has 3000 acres of arable crops which holds a huge head of deer, he is of the opinion that deer are crop eating vermin & all he sees should die... a right c**t!

    To keep him happy & secure my stalking i try to take as many animals as i can to keep him sweet, leaving the mature bucks/does & knock out all the young stuff.

    Its a hard job, but someone has to do it.
    If i dont, he wont be long in finding a willing replacement for me.
