    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.
    Used to fend off other males during rut.
    They have babies all year, unlike their bigger relatives. Pretty much like rabbits.

    now that's a nice size to carry out of the bush. wonder if we could import them as goats and accidently leave the gate open.

    Well you missed out Scottrods because they taste really good that’s a nice sized head you took as well.
    Did you try skinning the little guy.....because they are bloody tough. @Gibo there teeth are used mostly for digging for roots and bulbs. This time of the year you often find them with a gut full of bluebells when you gut them it’s like what he’s been eating smurfs
    They are a tough little animal Jim Corbbit hunted them along with Leopards and Tigers.
    But year there pretty cool. The bucks give a call like a barking dog. Sort of “Rough” once then about 30 seconds latter another “Rough”
    I’ve heard of bird dogs getting ripped up when they corner them during the game bird season.
    Cheers S

    Year but fun! They run around like bad little school boys
    Was trying to get a bead on a good buck that was chasing a doe around a tree with three other bucks. Man I got dizzy following that through the scope gave up in the end, just sat back and watched...they ran off and had there gang bang in the bushes near by.
    Took a lesser buck that came back looking like he’d not gotten any cream
    Gave him to a neighbor

    Nice little munty. I had some pretty cool encounters with them in the woods when I was living there - never got the chance to shoot one. Did you use shooting sticks?

    Yeah, off sticks. Did sit in a high seat for a bit. Was fun watching squirrels but got him during a walk-around.
