    Yep, pretty docile looking (until the fit hits the shan, that is - as you mention, Ned).
    Same reason Greenland Ox or Elephant dont appeal to that much (even if I had the funds).
    Rifle hunting most often is 'easy' after a while - real men hunt with bow, spear or even better, knives!
    I'll run with the first part of the last statement mate.

    Hi Carl, I can.

    Still putting it all into context, turns out my 2nd cousin 3 times removed is the famous film director Robert Edward Stevenson, who you will all know from his Disney films. He directed "Mary Poppins", "The Love Bug" etc.

    Robert Stevenson - IMDb

    His daugther is the actress Venetia Invicta Stevenson, who stared in the WW2 film Darby's Rangers. Found pics of her with Elvis, etc. She married Don Everly of the Everly Brother's fame.

    Their daughter is Erin Invicta Everly, my 5th cousin, once removed. She married Axl Rose! He wrote Sweet child of mine for her.

    How cool is that?

    I can take my direct Stevenson bloodline back to 1580.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Great mounts and photos guys!
    I don't actually hunt, but I do collect birds of prey. I have permits for 25 birds, although I have only 11 mounted. The rest are still in the freezer.
    Hawks, owls and falcons. The fischer I found on the highway on a fishing trip. He was still warm, I could not bring myself to leave him there. My taxidermist friend told me that most people who hunt have not and probably never will see one in the wild.
    Ned, you are correct, my friend told me that even if they damage their genitals while jumping over a fence, their antlers will be deformed. He mounted a moose recently that had one antler that curved down and formed a sort of cup over the eye, very neat.
    Ralph.

    Interesting trophies chaps. I have seen a grossly mutated Moose trophy in the Boone and Crockett Club in Missoula, MT. I had a photo of it but can't find it now, so here's one I've lifted off the net as an example, although nowhere near as big.

    Did you know that if a bull becomes castrated due to fighting during the rut or by accident; that the bull will immediately shed itís current set of antlers and start to re-grow another set, this new set will be deformed and misshapen and he will wear this set for the rest of his life never shedding them again? It's true!!
    Yes, absolutely true. If the supply of testosterone is interrupted or the supply cut off, the antlers will grow uncontrollably in velvet, never shedding or hardening. Eventually the mass on the head of the deer will kill it through infection or because the antler will grow down over the face of the animal and blind it. These heads are known as 'Perruque'. Common in Roe deer compared to other species, maybe as a result of them living at barbed wire height in area with barbed wire. Ouch.

    The rifle is the only legal option in the U.K.

    Nice mounts Ralph, I didn't realise you needed a permit to keep these in the U.S.. I have some roadkill in the freezer and like you, if I find an uncommon animal or bird by the side of the road, I have to stop too!
    I'm not always popular.........

    Hi Pat, no, I don't have any of his albums. I didn't enjoy his music enough to buy them.
