Fallow Deer Hunting Texas

About The Fallow Deer

A fully grown buck weighs around 120 to 200 pounds while the doe is about 60 to 90 pounds. Their height is around 25 to 45 inches at the shoulders. The buck’s palmate antlers take around three years to grow fully, and they are about 20 inches wide. They shed and regrow their showy antlers every year. During the first two years of the buck’s life, the antlers are more or less elk-like with only three or four times stemming off the beams. As it matures, the antlers develop into palmated or webbed shovels with irregular smaller points and a larger tine. Trophy set of the Fallow deer antlers range from 28 to 30 inches long and an inside spread of 20 to 24 inches.

Apart from hunting them for their antlers, fallow deer present quite a challenge for hunters who are on the lookout for a physically-challenging hunt. If you prefer to still or stalk hunt, prepare for rough terrains. While hunting, you should keep downwind as this species has an exceptional sense of smell.

Fallow deer are available in three distinct color variations; chocolate, spotted, and creamy white. The creamy white variation is the most popular in Texas. While they have rather short legs, they are quite powerful, which is why they present quite a challenge to hunters.

Unlike Whitetail deer which are generally browsers, the Fallow Deer is a grazer. Therefore, you are likely to find Fallow Deer in open, grassy areas. They feed on tree barks in the absence of grass. The fact that Fallow Deer are grazers makes their game meat much more enjoyable.

I toured the 777 this weekend and was extremely impressed at the job these guys have done there. The animals are fantastic with so many different species and such large groups it is truly amazing. It was like going back in time to Africa when animals were abundant. With the future of so many endangered species looking very bleak we should all be proud to have facilities like the 777 that will help preserve animal species for humans to enjoy well into the future. Thank you 777 for the wonderful animals that you guys raise insuring species survival for so many that are about to become extinct in their native homelands. Job well done!

Went to the 777 this weekend. Had an incredible time. We had Steven Rann as our guide. He was fantastic! Though the doves were not moving, he made the experience so enjoyable that we could have cared less about no dove. He took us around and showed us all of the incredible species that the 777 offers. The whole staffed catered to anything we need. They took such great care of use. We will definitely be back to chase some big game with Steven!
