Pretty early but the fallow buck was going for it big time today in the Teign valley in Devon, i was distracted as i was supposed to be guiding a couple of fly fisherman on the river but was mesmerised by the sound coming through the tree's
Anyone else heard any?

I shot a buck at the weekend and whilst he was a good weight, with a chunky neck on him, he didn't smell in the slightest bit rutty......

reds are hard, walked into a great big buck on Friday , still in velvet, but the forest tends to be behind everywhere else due to poor feed values.

First red stag clean here July 20th, same day as last year. Stags have been roaring since last week in August, saw a hind served earlier this week.
But this is a farm, not in the wild.
