What brings you to the UK?  School?

My wife is here for school.  I moved over with my company to make less money and pay more for rent.   :tup:

 :bash: :bash: :bash:

Trying to make the best of it.  No big forest to hike or camp in, no inland fishing really...  but, some really nice folks have taken me out hunting a few times and for that I'm extremely grateful.

I don't know how to judge roe but the bases on that look pretty big. Nice looking animal. You doing some kind of mount of it? Saving the skull at least I hope.

Roe deer antlers are way cool, nice one. 👍

I think thats a decent 4-5 year old animal.  Not a monster, but definitely a decent representative roe buck.  This is mostly done for pest control (as most shooting here is) unless you do a paid hunt where they're raised for your shooting pleasure.

HIGH game populations here as all the ground is pretty agricultural grazing focused with decent cover and zero predators (aside from fox and a handful of badger).  In our short walk we saw 8 muntjac (including some big bucks, at least as far as Muntjac go) and 2 roe doe.  You typically expect to get an animal every time you go out unless you're being extra picky on size.  Does take some of the fun out of it, but its still nice to get out and get some good meat.  Most paid places make you buy the carcass as it can be sold to the local butcher.  It sounds like most prices are 2.00/kg, head off, legs off below joint, guts out and fur still on.  The guy I go with lets me keep the carcass as he's tired of eating them and shoots about 30+ animals a year total.
