Muntjac Deer

The Muntjac deer is an invasive, fast breeding and quite destructive little deer. Having said that they are also a fantastic little deer and the stalking and eating of them is excellent so all is forgiven! The typical habitat of the Muntjac deer is thick scrubby woodland such as mixed broadleaf woodland with a thick bramble and varied undergrowth floor.

Muntjac Deer are usually seen alone or with another but are always on the move when feeding as prolific browsers. The Muntac bucks are exceptionally territorial and patrol their territories with the intent of chasing out all competition and finding females ready to breed. This behaviour ties in with their continuous breeding patterns where unlike our other deer, the Muntjac bucks are always fertile so it is like a perpetual rut for the adult males.

The females will usually conceive at 7 months and give birth by one year old but then become pregnant almost immediately after giving birth and then drop their fawns regularly every seven months and at any time of the year. These little deer are spreading fast and reproducing with compound interest rate of about 10-12% per year. It is likely that they are either now or very soon will be Britain's most numerous deer.
