    Tree Damage

    Hi Guys
    I have included a few pics of tree damage I found this morning on a small piece of ground I shoot on.
    I am hoping for some of your thoughts as to the damage.
    It all seemed fairly recent and at the lower levels of the trees.
    Roe are certainly in evidence, but this is the first occasion I have found this damage.

    Thanks in advance

    Alan

    deffo not roe, looks quite high up, I'd say a hare was stripping that off..rabbits would tend to eat the bark strippings, these have been left in long slivers.

    red?
    Best practice just says deer strip bark (though rarely roe)

    you can rule out roe and muntjac because they don't bark strip... chinese and fallow are not present in the area so that only leaves red and sika.

    My guess would be red

    Depending on food availability all species of deer could bark strip! They have to be hungry though or under pressure from other deer.

    teeth marks are too big for squirrels, could be ponies.... any hoofprints?
