  Spring hunting of European roe deer in Vojvodina: Age structure and trophy value
 
 
Title: Spring hunting of European roe deer in Vojvodina: Age structure and trophy value
Author: Gačić Dragan

Contents: Trophies of the European roe deer are the main source of income in Vojvodina hunting grounds managed by hunting associations. The specificity of site conditions (agro-biotope) aggravates the hunting, especially regarding the assessment of the age and trophy value, so the best males are hunted before they reach the culmination of trophy development. The aim of this study is to define reliably the age of males in spring hunting and to analyze their trophy structure. The study results show that, in the majority of the study hunting grounds, spring (May) hunting was performed correctly and professionally, and the age structure and trophy value of the males were very favorable. The males that are considered as mature for shooting account for one half of the total spring hunting, while their percentage is even higher in the so-called "trophy hunting" (60.7%), which results in a high percentage of trophies in medals (21.5%).
