Time for the Rut…….


Reports are coming in from Scotland to the South of England that the Red Deer Rut is underway.

So far in our part of the country we have yet to hear that dramatic ‘roar’ of the calling male establishing his territory.

Surely within the next two weeks they must circum’ to the annual ritual.

So till then, here is an image from this time last year, when the Rut was nearly over and the Hinds could once again relax.

      • Lovely set of antlers…. In the spring I like to go into the woods in the middel of the country and hope to finf a set there… Although I think the rangers will try to beat me at that. I can buy them then… something I didn’t want to when it’s just been thrown away… 🙂
