Well the Roe buck rut has now pretty much drawn to a close here in the UK. This elusive little deer which is truly native to the UK, is one of the most popular species to stalk. Once considered vermin they are now stalked during a proper season and with careful management are capable of producing some of the nicest trophies that you will see. This particular example was measured by a representative from the Conseil International de la Chasse (C.I.C) who are renowned throughout Europe as one of the top trophy measuring and conservation organisations. It was awarded a Gold medal after achieving just over 142 points, the minimum requirement for Gold being 135.
