Fallow deer

In Hungary it is classified as resettled game. We have classical populations around Gyulaj, in the area of Upper-Tisza River, Békés, Somogy, and Pest Counties. The Gyulaj and Guth population is having the most outstanding world records, but also promising results were achieved at the new resettlement areas as well. Flat and semi-steep hilly areas, non-extreme, Mediterranean or slightly continental climate, small leafy forest patches split by small agricultural areas provide favourable habitat for the fallow deer. We call the male deer stag and the female deer is called the fallow doe, and the young is called the calves. Roe-doe is the over one-year old, female fallow deer, which did not have a calf yet.

Unfortunately we are not aware where the fallow deer originates from. It was endemic in our forests until the last ice age, but after that it died out. Romans and landowners keen on hunting resettled the fallow deer, and their number has considerably increased. The fallow deer found a favourable home in Hungary, all conditions were given for its development. Due to the nearly intact nature their body stucture is strong. All fallow deer antler world records come from the forests around Gyulaj area and from Guth located close to Debrecen. The Turi Meadow, Határvölgy and Marcin Well are notions for the hunters like Burgund, Porto or Tokaj for the wine experts. Due to the targeted resettlement in the 1970s the fallow deer lives in various areas of the country nowadays. Fallow deer with an antler over 4 kg are especially alert. It requires a lot patience and stamina to hunt down a group of fallow deer. The best stags can be shot in October in the rutting period, the scrap stags and female deer can be hunted from November to January. The unique atmosphere, the beauty of trophies and landscape and the thought that you are hunting at the world's best fallow deer areass makes it an unforgettable experience to spend time with the hunters and nature lovers.
