The Roe Deer Thread
      #158227 - 05/04/10 01:59 AM

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The diminutive roe deer, a clever beast living often in close proximity to man, in orchards, vineyards, fields and forests.

One of the most sought after game animals in Europe by numbers taken alone.

Please share your photos.

93mouse,

As always you supply the goods with excellent photos.

I love roe deer and your dog is always welcome in the photos too.

Very nice too. These was taken in May a few years ago:-


He was laying with this pretty 4 Pt and this was all you could see at first:-







And this one is from the same place but a couple of years earlier still:-





Now I was out stalking Roe Buck only last Thursday morning at at 07:30 got this one. A nice mature 6 Pt which unbeknown to me at the time Robbo the stalker was fliming:-






The rifle is my 59 Vintage BSA Majestic Featherweight Deluxe in 270 winchester. The dog is one of Robbos and a sweet thing. That morning gave me few firsts. My first deer with Robbo (second outign with him and the only reason we did not bring a Doe home last time was the Swedish Mauser refused to fire ), my first 6pt Roe Buck and the first time I had used the Federal Fusion 150 grain ammunition. Despite the photo I was actually quite please but as the shot came a bit late due to my dithering on deciding whether to shoot this Buck or not I was not so pleased with my own performance

Today was opening day in Bavaria, and many who usually rush out this day stayed home because of stormy weather. I, however, have often had my best days on various kinds of game in bad weather as especially seasoned game animals get around more then, as they seems to feel safe from hunters in bad weather.

I was payed off with shooting this grey ghost, while still-hunting with my dog deep in the forrest, just before noon:

Got this little fella - they are ghosty - territorial bucks are driving them away at first sight, so they are very hard to get.
Saturday at 20.50 (sunset was at 20.10) - very hard estimation (shooting a pregnant doe would be a real problem) and shot at 120m:

After a forced truce of a month,consecutive to a very untimely fractured elbow, I have sufficiently progressed in my revalidation to handle a rifle, so that I could resume hunting last week (Roebucks are in full rut). The season being advanced, I gave priority to selection instead of trophies and was able to cull these 2 unpromising bucks :



BTW, with an eye on stalking wild boar on a new hunting lease in another area, I had switched from my std. Roedeer 30-06 handload (165 Sierra GK) to a heavier 180 gn Norma Vulkan handload. Both bucks were shot with the latter and I was surprised by the rather violent expansion of the Vulkan on such light bodied game. I had expected smaller wounds from the Vulkan heavier and harder bullet.

3 shots do not make a group, they show a point of aim or impact.
5 shots are a group.

There are three sub-species of Roe Deer. The European Roe Deer, the Siberian Roe Deer and the Chinese Roe Deer. The Siberian form is larger than the other two, and has antlers which have more branches.
In Europe the world record buck is shot in Great Britain and was measured by CIC in 2007. The second biggest is shot in the south of Sweden. You find good trophies in most of the northen countries of Europe. /Sville

FWIW the missus is at Lago di Garda ATM where she had a meal of tagliatelle and roe deer, remarking that it was very nice but not as good as home cooked sambal hare.

Have to show one smaller buck after 93Mouse's magnificent buck.
This is my first buck ever taken on to my own hunting ground. Stalked and shot with 30-30win single shot at 120 meters.

Weidmannsheil Paatti!

Size is always relative - there are giant roebucks taken every year in other grounds that would put mine to shame - but there is no comparison anyway...except age - in my book age is over inches - always!

Congrats again - may there be many more to come.
