Roman nose

Postby Ohio farms » Sat Sep 03, 2011 10:23 am

I've heard the expression "Roman Nose" to describe the appearance of an older mature buck's nose, but have never really heard the definition of it. I think it means kind of big and round, but I'm not exactly sure. (I've even looked at pictures of roman's noses and they don't look that unusual to me) I seem to be lacking that nugget of knowledge. Do any of you know?

Thanks....I may still be a bit confused though. Glad you're back with us.

Roman noses are a facial feature.
I think it's more of a trait thing than a age thing.
It's where the bridge of their nose between their eyes and snout is raised a bit.
Where most deer have straight alignment on their bridge.
It was given to them because many of the actual Romans had this trait. (large rounded bridges)

I see the pic above as a slight roman nose. It's there but not dramatic as I've seen.


Hope I've helped.

That is what I understood as a Roman nose along with a longer snout which I assumed is a trait of older/mature deer.

It's kind of hard to describe the feature. I guess you will know it if you see it. Two of my mounts have an older look/shape to the face than the third. It seems that from between the eyes to the tip of the nose is straight line rather than having a dip to the line. I'm thinking that this is the roman look. I appreciate everyones input.
