Day 1At the start of day 1, there was originally the sound of roaring, but only this hind and her calf was visible. She was a strong hind with a dull red/grey coat, and the fluffy calf would have been born in June, so would be about four months old. The two reminded me of the mother and daughter I saw in the same spot last year, where the daughter ended up killed shortly afterwards:
- He was a mature stag with big but not fully grown antlers. The antlers were brown with white tips.
- The brow tines - which are the first spike over the forehead - pointed horizontally.
- His right antler had four 'tines' and ended in a pair of small spikes.
- His left antler had three 'tines' and ended in a long spike.
- He had dark marks or stains at the end of the mouth and in front of the eye.
- He had a thinner mane.
- His antlers are lighter brown than Homer's
- His right antler had five points and ends in a three point 'cup'
- His left antler had three points and ends in a long spike, and had a circular mark by the second tine.
- His brow tines point more straight up
- There wasn't the big mark or stain in front of the eye, and the one by the mouth was smaller
- He had a thicker mane than Homer.
