    Its only a wee one, but its my first

    On a recent trip back to the UK, I was fortunate to hook up with a friend who guides.
    For the price of bottle of something 16yrs old, he took me out for a hunt for a Muntjac deer.
    Spring in UK, we stalked woodlands filled with bluebells, squirrels and pheasants.

    162yds with a 308win (min caliber for deer in UK is 243), the 150gr SST through the neck dropped him on the spot.
    Cute critter.

    Is there any particular purpose in having teeth/tusks like that? What does a little joker like that weigh? Taste good?

    would have thought even a 243 overkill on a deer that size. mind you with those gnashers wouldn't want the little fecker to bite me either. nice one are you going to make a mount out of the head almost looks devil like with those antlers.

    That's awesome! Those teeth... That's what happens when goats and pigs share a barn for a night!

    Saw one in Norfolk UK last year, first I thought dog... pig.. no, eventually worked it out.

    Canines are not just for gripping prey, they are just CALLED canines. Guess they are as useful as a swiss army knife when rummaging for food.

    I used to see Muntjac deer up on Aston Hill in the Chilterns when I lived in the UK. More than once one or more wandered in to view when I was taking a break from riding my mountain bike.

    The most cherished was when a hind and a fawn came along and were unaware of my prescence for quite a while. Proper deer but look like they got shrunk in the dryer!

    about 15kg.
    Don't know what it tastes like, I'm told like fallow. Part of the deal is that my mate is a game butcher and sells the meat to restaurants.
