Speaking with a stalker up in Inverness on Saturday. He was telling me he had seen two big woodland stags clean of velvet. He felt this was the earliest he had ever seen this.
Anyone else got any reports?
Out this morning saw two groups of stags, out of maybe 20-30 animals there was only one that was partially clean.
Recognising these particular deer and looking at their antlers, I recon there is still some growing to be done especially on the ones that were very late casting.
