European Roe Deer
EUROPEAN ROE DEER (Capreolus capreolus). The European Roe deer populations in Castile and Leon are spread all over the provinces of Burgos and Soria. In the provinces of Leon and Palencia, it only lacks in the agricultural areas of Tierra de Campos, and it is present throughout the northwest of Zamora (in the quadrant bounded by the Esla River to the east and the Duero River to the south) plus Las Arribes.
The hunting period is divided in two parts: the first runs from early April to early August, and the second from early September to mid-October. As in the case of deer, the European roe deer trophy consists on the bony antlers attached to the skull.
For the trophy homologation, antlers must be provided attached to the skull, unassembled of the table and clean of all foreign matter.
