Thread: Roe. Culls and curiosities.

    Roe. Culls and curiosities.

    Of all the 6 species of deer the Roe-deer is the most variable in form.
    No other species has so many variables and deformities.
    Collecting them can be a rewarding life-time hobby.
    Below are a couple which I shot , one with a damaged pedicle and one broken whilst still growing in velvet.
    This would have cast and re-grown normally the following season.

    Very interesting heads Gary and HWH The left hand head appears to have a permanent skull displacement, still very nice heads, with memorable stalks I bet, thank you for sharing.

    Here is an example of `contra-lateral deviance` where an injury to one side of a beast causes the antler to be abnormal on the opposite side.

    Internal parasites can also affect antler growth.
    This beast had a chronic lung-worm infestation.

    Regretfully I am buggered now, blind on one side and partially sighted on the other.
    Stalking, shooting etc finished.
    I did have a long successful run at it though and have the memories.
    Madam is keeping well and has gone to her home for a few days.
    She would be visiting Jesus this morning to get our sins forgiven !

    Bill Johnson has just popped in on his way down from Kielder killing things and is guzzling black tea and biscuits.
    Regards, HWH.
