Roe Deer and Their Antlers
A comprehensive and scholarly book on the ecology, reproduction, health, and particularly antler formation of the European roe deer. “The depth of hunting knowledge in central Europe is immense. But does it chime with what we know in Britain? Here at last is a book that investigates those many stalking ideas and Pavel Scherer has taken them to his heart and explored them over many years.
Most British roe deer stalkers will be fascinated and challenged by these notions and by the experiments that Pavel has conducted. Underlying it all is the love of roe and a deep drive to find out more about them to satisfy his enquiring mind.” (John Fletcher).
Chapters include: Reproduction of roe deer; The phenomenon of antler formation; Classes and shapes of roebuck antlers; The reasons for crooked antler formation; The specific weight and density of antlers; The influence of nutrition on the development of antlers; Abnormalities of roebuck antlers and reasons for this; Assessing the age of roe deer before and after shooting.
Originally published in Czech, this English language edition has been very well produced and makes available for the first time much European research into the life of the roe deer.
