* FREE GIFT WITH EVERY ROE DEER PURCHASE *
A beautiful hand carved shield dated 30.6.1956 - Engelrödchen (Kill location in Boppard, Germany).
His antlers are larger than standard for a Roe, and full jaw set is fixed to the back of the shield.
Roe hunting shields are a very ancient yet common practise of honouring food and pest culls. Unlike most animals such as our cattle and chickens, you will rarely find a single remnant left over from the animal, as every part is utilised.
In this case the animals have had their caps and some half skulls with their unique antlers, mounted to hand cut shields for wall display.
