    tenderized steaks. Fallow bucks are way more aggressive than red stags. Nasty little fuks.

    I had one come running in to check me out last weekend, I'm not sure if he wanted to fight or f*** but I wasn't keen on either option...

    Fighting over sheilahs. See what it leads to!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Nice wee 4 year old. Had a bit of character. It’ll get hung up in the workshop along with the other fight victims

    The wife and I were glassing across the block last week and watched a wild fallow buck hobbling up the face towards the bush line. He lay down in the sun and parked off for a couple of hours so we decided to stalk in and take a closer look. At one point he got up and walked a few places along the ridge line and it was clear he was injured so we neck shot him and took him to the chiller.

    I wish now I had taken photos in the chiller because he was also banged up pretty bad on the one side. There are introduced fallow down in the pine block surrounded by pasture and they don’t go far, the hinds attract a lot of interest from wild bucks and this year there has been a large black one with a massive head causing all sorts of problems for the introduced bucks. We had watched the black buck come steaming in to the fallow herd a few nights previously and wondered if there were going to be any casualties. Then couple of days later for the first time we saw a bunch of tagged hinds up in the bush about 3 km from their normal territory, being marshalled along by the big black buck. So looking forward to some decent crossbreeding now and growth in wild fallow numbers, there’s definitely been an increase in the last two years.

    I shot a one antlered buck on Thursday that was dealing to a much bigger buck he’d killed.

    They certainly go hard at each other.
    I listened to a couple of bucks fighting last week down in the scrub below me and they went at it solidly for half and hour.
    Saw one limp away with a big hole behind his shoulder. Hopefully not fatal.
