Roe Deer

(Capreolus Capreolus)

The Trophy

Roe deer buck trophies can have very different appearances, depending on the area of origin and the environmental conditions. This is actually quite desirable within the context of the maximum possible genetic diversity.

The basic Roe buck form is a six-point head with a main beam, brow tine, and rear tine, to which the CIC evaluation method can be fully applied.

Antlers from a perruque buck and such trophies for which the volume cannot be determined accurately are excluded from an evaluation using CIC methods.

Key Features For Measuring Antlers

  • A bronze medal Roe buck will generally need a dry full skull weight of at least 455 g, and a volume of at least 150 ccs.

  • A silver medal will probably require a dry full skull weight of at least 510 g and a volume of at least 165 ccs, with a gold medal normally requiring a dry skull weight of 570 g and a volume of 200 ccs.

  • However, there is considerable variation due mainly to the age of the buck and also the quality of the beauty points. Nevertheless, a trophy of 26 cm in main beam length with the above required weight and volume for bronze should achieve this colour medal with average marks for each of the beauty points and full marks for span.
  • Roe deer antlers must have a dry out period (after preparation) of at least 30 days before evaluation.
