Thread: Red Stag Antler growth

  1. #1

    Red Stag Antler growth

    Now that I have worked out how to display photos I will put up a series showing the antler growth of one of my park stags. He is quite docile as he is an ex farm stag so I am optimistic that I will be able to photograph him every five days.

    10/4/12 One coronet cast two days before the other. Obviously his antlers were sawn off earlier.

    15/4/12 Five days later

    This should be interesting, looking forward to seeing it progress, I was quite suprised by the numbers of reds on my patch that have very well developed antlers already, they look as though they are at the same point of growth as they were in August last year........

    Interesting thread.

    Looking forward to seeing the antler develop.

    What age is this Stag chap?

    Interesting to see this in photos, I too see it most days in a deer park and it amazes me year after year how noticeably fast the growth is

    Very interesting, looking forward to the next update.

    I've been reading the article in the Spring BDS journal about hormonal control and red deer antler cycles, fascinating stuff.

    Now worked out how to make the photos a sensible size!
