Roebuck in Somerset

England

Southern England is now known as a good address for strong roebucks and is on a par with Eastern Hungary or Sweden in terms of trophy quality. The county of Somerset is located in the southwest of England and is known for its cider production. Near the town of Yeovil there are about 20,000 hectares of hunting grounds. The good quality of the roebucks, the many years of experience and the high competence of our local partner are the best basis for taking major roebucks.

Informations about European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus capreolus)

European roe deer is the most widespread and most common hoofed game in Europe. Depending on the region, weights of up to 30 kg can be achieved. It is a very territory-loyal forest and field inhabitant. In summer, the bucks mostly stand alone, the does stand together with fawns. In the winter time roe deer join together in small herds. The bucks occupy their territories in March/April and defended them against competitors until the end of the rut in August. Roe deer is primarily active in the early morning and evening hours. The sense of smell is pronounced, the eyes are not the best but roe deer can notice faster motions.

English roebucks are characterized mainly by the capital trophies. In exceptional cases, antler weights above 600 g can be reached and weights over 500 g are not uncommon.

Furthermore, you need well-worn footwear and weather- and windresistant, low-noise clothing. Good binoculars and, if necessary, a shooting stick complete the equipment.
