    Odd Cull

    Took this interesting roe cull at the weekend, l have come across this once or twice before but only once the heads have been cleaned off, this is the first time l have seen it so promanant on a deer still in the skin, when l get the head boiled out l will post more pics.

    Dont think so, no sign of damage, the beast was acting normal in every sense, l suspect it was a birth defect.

    Ive seen similar deformities in dairy cattle. In the cattle it is a genetic defect and can be found more frequently in some lines than others.

    Seen it quite often in Red, less common in Roe I think.

    There was a few articles about this malformation in the old Stalking Magazine, but more to do with red and sika, i can't remember the reasons for it, i will have to dig them out for read.

    I cleaned a head for a mate last year with a similar malform but not as pronounced, in fact it wasn't noticed until i was cleaning for a full skull as it was potential medal, on both sides of the nose were small perforations, which i guessed were possibly from nasal bot fly, but just a guess as it seems to be not very common in roe, i have pictures which i will post later as they don't seem to load from my work PC, i discussed this with Ian Watson, CIC measurer at Scone Game Fair, who was keen to have a look at it, unfortunately the head no longer existed full skull, as it was stolen from the table by a Labrador my mate was looking after for somebody and only the antlers and bone holding them together were left, the head scored bronze but would have made silver if the full skull had been there.
