  • Scotland's red deer surplus.

    Scotland seems to have a problem managing its red deer populations.
    The red deer are cousins to our North American wapiti, or elk.
    The antler difference is that our elk have a main beam than droops at the tip, while the red deer form an upward three-point "crown."
    They are truly majestic animals.

    Here is a photo of some mature male red deer, called stags, typically with six points to a side, but can exceed as many as twenty points to a side.

      Beautiful animals and they taste good too. I was able to take a stag in New Zealand this past summer. Stag of a lifetime for me.

          Beautiful Ernie. That head must take up a whole wall unless you have vaulted ceilings. What rifle and load? Who was your outfitter? Did you go by yourself or part of a group?

            Since I couldn't hunt with a handgun, I just chose to use the outfitters rifle, which was a 338 Lapua with 265 Nosler LR AB's at 624 yards. I should get the shoulder mount in the spring. I went by myself. My wife and I were vacationing, and I got permission to hunt for several days.
