Fallow Deer Stalking Scotland

--

Fallow deer, in their dappled summer outfits or dowdy winter coats, are only found in a few areas of Scotland.  Fortunately for our clients, we have access to estates where premier herds roam.

Whether it’s in a slow woodland stalk or a trek on the open hill, the sight of their palmated antlers will lift your spirits as you bring your stalk to a successful conclusion

 

 

About Fallow Deer

The male fallow deer is known as a buck, the female is a doe, and the young a fawn. Adult bucks are 140–160 cm (55–63 in) long with a 85–95 cm (33–37 in) shoulder height, and typically 60–100 kg (130–220 lb) in weight; does are 130–150 cm (51–59 in) long with a 75–85 cm (30–33 in) shoulder height, and 30–50 kg (66–110 lb) in weight. The largest bucks may measure 190 cm (75 in) long and weigh 150 kg (330 lb). Fawns are born in spring at about 30 cm (12 in) and weigh around 4.5 kg (9.9 lb). The life span is around 12–16 years.

The species has great variations in the colour of their coats, with four main variants, “common”, “menil”, melanistic and leucistic – a genuine colour variety, not albinistic. The white is the lightest coloured, almost white; common and menil are darker, and melanistic is very dark, sometimes even black (easily confused with the sika deer).
