    Thirty odd years ago i visited a Schloss in Erbach Germany, an estate where they used to shoot driven deer in the 18th and 19th century, the whole place is now a museum crammed from top to bottom with mounted antlers.
    One room was devoted to abnormalities where the curator told us that if a stag recieves a significant injury to a leg, the antler on the opposite side to the leg injury will deform.

    This is exactly, what we learn when preparing for our hunting test!
    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.

    It was only last night that I saw a yearling roe buck with only one antler {still in velvet} . . . Looked like a unicorn . . I could have shot him but didn't . . .I know where he is so will be waiting till he's clean then he will get the chop . . should make a nice unusual head.

ID:	28088 My strangest Roe head shot last week with four spikes on the right side the front three fused together. Probably caused by earlier pedicle damage.
