Sparing young bucks

One winters day in the late eighties I was walking across a clearing in Thetford forest when I disturbed a resting Red Stag. It was startled and I was too close for comfort. Well, let’s not put any heirs and graces on the moment, I was cacking myself. I’m a big lad but this thing was looking down on me. It had to be the biggest Red Deer ever and it dwarfed me. When it ran, and thank god it ran away from me, I could feel the ground shake. These are powerful big animals

There aren’t many Red Deer in North Norfolk but they can be found with a little patience. However we found several within a couple of herds on a foray into Suffolk last week, including a couple of young animals that were sparing with one another.
