Trophy Deer for parks
We only make use of bloodlines which have been monitored in nature or large fenced parks by hunters for many years and which have become world famous for their desirable characteristics. Our master stags descend directly from important, mainly East-European bloodlines (one from Croatia, one from former East Germany,one from Romania-Carpathia). We also have one master stag from Denmark, one from Germany-Sweden (F. Weber) and one from England (Woburn Abbey):
- The Schulte-Wrede line, famous for its heavy specimens. This blood line was acquired in 1991 through the late Gerald Walker from West Sussex;
- The Jelen line from the late Marshal Tito from Croatia. These deer, often blonde, are huge and have long, heavy and regular antlers. This line was extensively bred in our hinds by our former Croatian stag Yugo (see picture at the bottom), descendant from Meister. This is the reason why our adult hinds weigh over 130 kgs, with a few exceptions above 140-150 kgs.
- The line from Jaegersborg Dyrehave, Copenhague’s Royal Park, world famous for their magnificent antlers. This bloodline sometimes produces white deer, a sometimes desired mutation. As we do not particularly aim at the production of white deer, they are no longer bred at our farm.
- The Woburn Park line, famous for its heavy and multi-branched antlers. For a few years we have been using a multi-pointer stag of Ludo Braeckman’s who sold directly deer from Woburn Abbey in Belgium. Though, as we have found the Woburn line rather small and unnatural with their numerous pointers, we have decided to discontinue breeding this lineage;
- Two Hungarian bloodlines which combine heavy deer with heavy, broad, long antlers;
- One Carpatian stag, bought in August 2017. On purchase, this huge three-year-old stag was wearing hard antlers which proved to weigh 10.5 kgs freshly cut.
- At the beginning of 2018 we acquired 18 supposedly pregnant hinds from hunting park Franz Weber in Germany. This bloodline, originally Swedish, is famous for its extremely heavy, broad but rather short antlers.
