Re: Roe Deer

Brown dog,

The Sika's are a fairly small deer too. They average about 65-75 pounds for the bucks and around 45-50 pounds for the does. It is amazing how the antler structure can vary is such a short distance. I have new seen a Roe Deer before. i fist glance the buck in your first picture could pass for a Sika. The white rump is a Sika trait too. the sika's look like miniature Elk. they bugle just like an elk too. The bucks are a deep dark brown most of the time. althought the last picture I posted (4 point) was a Auburn color. Very pretty deer and also was a large bodied deer (104 pounds dressed). thats why i had him mounted.

The last picture you posted with the ruler is not far off the scale of my racks. Most of mine ar around 11 wide and 11 to 15 inches tall. if you moved the antlers on your about an inch farther apart i would swear it was a Sika rack.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I have never seen a Roe Deer before. I enjoy seeing the other species of deer around the world.

Matt
