5x Day Fallow Buck Hunt
Fallow deer or Dama dama dama were amoung the first species of deer to be successfully introduced to new Zealand. They are the most variable of any deer species in New Zealand with four quite distinctive colour phases.
Melanistic: In New Zealand this is the most common colour encountered. Brown-black back with paler grey-brown underside and neck. There are no spots or tail patch.
Common: Light red brown sides and back with conspicuous white spots and a black stripe down the back. Colour grey black in winter.
Menil: A paler version of the 'common phase' fallow, in summer coat, but doesn't attain the darker winter coat.
Leucistic: In young animals a creamy colour which with age (by second summer) become's pure white. Such white animals are not albino having dark eyes and nose.
We have multiple options for hunting Fallow both free range and estate options. Their rut usually runs from Mid April through to the end of May or mid June this changes year to year but we have found generally by the start of May they have started rutting.
They are a very alert deer and a lot of fun to stalk with bow or rifle in hand.
