Fallow Deer

This common species of deer is native to western Eurasia but has been widely introduced almost everywhere. The Fallow deer has white spots on their backs and the bucks have large shovel shaped, palmated antlers. As true antlers, the rack of the Fallow buck sheds each spring and regrows during the summer. After regrowth, the velvet is rubbed off and the hard horn coincides with breeding season each fall. The coat color of the Fallow deer can range from nearly pure white to a dark chocolate brown. Fast and agile in danger, Fallow deer can run up to 30 mph on short distances. The 10xXx Ranch has a large herd of white to tan colored Fallow which can normally be seen by the visitor.
