Roe Deer

Roe Deer

The Roe deer is Britain's most widespread deer and is present in most parts of mainland UK but not the Scottish islands. Like the Red deer it is a native species having been here since the ice age but it is a much smaller species than the Red and only about a quarter of the size. Roe deer have an average weight of about 18kg but are much smaller in the highlands of Scotland compared to the Lowland of England. They are generally browsers but also graze which can lead to lots of superficially damage of small trees, bushes, shrubs and crops.

The Roe deer bucks generally live either alone when mature but they will often come together in mixed sex groups in winter. The Roe deer mature does will usually be seen with a juvenile follower up until close til they give birth around May. Roe deer does usually give birth to twins and it is not uncommon to see them in the late summer with two small followers not far behind.

Roe deer stalking varies greatly depending on the environments you have access to but whether it's the urban fringes of cities or the wild highlands of Scotland the experience is always a memorable one.
