Two peruke tropies were shot in Scotland in the last week of June. The first, a buck, was reported to Allan Allison, the retired CIC trophy measurer, and was taken in Fife. This animal was reported to be suffering from a number of health issues and its age is yet to be determined.

The second animal was shot in Caithness and may be the largest ever female peruke discovered in the UK. It was taken by John Waters, who was initially under the impression he was stalking a young buck which had a silage bag entangled in its antlers.
