Fallow Deer (Dama dama)

These graceful and dainty slender deer are smart and fast, making for challenging hunting. Fallow bucks with there palmated antlers and attractive markings make a handsome and almost picturesque addition to any trophy collection.

Fallow are very variable in colour, with four main variants, brown, grey with white spots, chocolate and white.

Fallow Deer rut a little later than Red Deer, and become very vocal in April to May, but interestingly the fallow buck will sound out opposing hunters with a series of croaks and barks unlike a red deer’s’ roar.

They can be hunted from late February until end of August.
