Thread: An Oxfordshire Muntjac

  1. #1

    An Oxfordshire Muntjac

    A short while ago, I was lucky enough to pick up a very small piece of ground in Oxfordshire. This is the first piece of land I've ever had thats got deer on it, so I've been doing everything to keep it, particulrly knocking over a few rabbits and squirels for the owner.

    I've seen muntjac every time I've been there, but it's a challenging piece of land to shoot safely, due to the angles and the proximity of other properties, so I took my time working out an approach. Anyway, the other night, I popped over, and there was a buck chasing a doe around. To cut a long story short, I bagged my first munt (and my first deer shot on my own ground, as well as the first I've shot on my own).

    I'm quite chuffed as you might imagine! Turns out he's a reasonable size too.

    Thanks fellas.

    Yeah, ironically, never having had any great interest in medals (or the money to facilitate the pursuit of them!) it does look as if I may have got one accidentally!

    I will admit to having had a quick measure and a tot up a la the CIC red book. I've cut it though - doesn't that invalidate it or something?

    The answer to that is, no it does not invalidate it.

    There is no weight score for Muntjac only antler measurements so, as long as the antlers are intact there is no issue.

    Looks a nice head, I'm guessing that he hadn't been out of velvet long based on the lack of colour.
