Scotland - Isle of Mull - Pennyghael estate deer cull skulls and antlers
Hens peck at deer and goat skulls and antler remains that lie in the rain after the annual cull at the Pennyghael Estate, Isle of Mull, Scotland. In the wet gravel, the heads still have their flesh attached to their sockets and farm livestock are free to clear them before the remains are cleaned again and sent to those who shot these animals, many of which came to this estate on the Ross of Mull from other EU countries. The open seasons for deer stalking in Scotland are: Red deer – stags 1st July – 20th October Red deer – hinds 21st October – 15th February Roe bucks 1st April – 20th October
Fallow bucks 1st August – 30th April.
