Trophy fallow deer is an incredibly interesting animal to hunt especially during the rut, when stags can be heard calling and one can detect and stalk stags by the sound of crashing antlers. The rut for fallow deer runs from March - June and hunters looking at hunting fallow deer in rut must be advised: the earlier in the rut the better. Stags lose their antlers towards the end of September into October, with regrowth starting almost immediately in spring.
