Fallow Deer

The Fallow deer population in the UK has an uncertain history although some reports would indicate the first stable populations were established around the 11th century. They are a non native species that has been here for so long that they are generally mistaken for being native. There are four main types of fallow deer pelage that usually fall into varieties of either common, menil, white or melanistic. This can make identifying them when other deer species are present a little more trickier.


The Fallow deer is a herding species that can form large herds and cause serious damage to crops, young plantations and impact heavily on local ecology. As a herding deer they are also transient and can appear and disappear from an area overnight. This can make some free living populations difficult to manage and after shooting a single animal the remainder may leave your area.


Fallow deer are intermediate feeders and like to browse and graze so areas with access to grass, young plantations and mature woodland cover for shelter is ideal.
