New UK Muntjac Record
The holy grail of Reeves Muntjac has for many years been a head measuring more than 80 CIC points. At 79.9 points, a buck from Buckinghamshire with exceptionally long antlers taken in 2009 was tantalisingly close, that is until now, when this very unusual example was hunted in Hampshire. Evaluated during the recent training held in Oxford it scored 81.88 CIC points after very careful consideration. Going by the structure of the antlers, the excessive tooth wear, and the bone overgrowth on the upper skull this leviathan was certainly over 10 years old, a unique specimen.
