Fallow bucks are very aggressive towards other bucks during their rut which runs from April to May over the protection of the does. Fallow are also a very vocal deer, producing a croaking, grunting sound during their rut. This is a challenge call to other bucks and quite the show to watch.

They come in three color phases, chocolate, spotted menil (red-grey skin with white spots) and pure white. Bucks can be hunted from late Feb – Sept and are regarded as one of the most beautiful deer species, with palmated antlers similar to moose paddles.
