The season for Fallow Buck stretches from 1st August until the 30th April and for Fallow Does from the 1st November until the 31st March.
Fallow Deer (Dama dama) are a herding deer and have been gracing our countryside for hundreds of years having first been introduced by the Normans. For many years they were associated with wealth and their presence in the private grounds of many Country Estates was seen as a status symbol.
Today the south east of England plays host to large numbers of wild fallow deer, who now roam free around areas were once they were introduced.
Here at County Deer Stalking our fallow deer stalking is over the grounds of two such former Country Estates, however the fallow today are completely wild and free ranging.
The Fallow seen on the Estates vary in appearance and include the colour variations Menil, Common, White and Melanistic (black). The Fallow Rut usually takes place around October and can be an exciting time when the bucks take up 'Rutting Stands' and can be heard by their characteristic 'groaning'.
Although the predominant species on the estates are Fallow deer, it is also frequented with occassional Roe deer and Muntjac deer.
To find out more about Fallow Deer and to watch us stalk this species over one of our Esatates in Oxfordshire, take a look at our Short Films page: short-films (March 2014)
