I am fairly knew to deer stalking & to learn more i have got hold of a DSC level 1 guide just to read & learn more for the moment being. But when reading about antlers on red stags there is about six or so names for each indivigual pieace on each antler, & i cant quite work out what pieace is called what. There is no picture of a diagram to identify the name. I was wondering if any body new a web site, cd, or book to learn from. All help is greatly thank full.
