A thrilling hunt

The Fallow Buck is one of the least hunted deer species, yet is one of the most thrilling hunts a hunter can experience. During the "croak", where the bucks emit a frog like noise, bucks are active all day and night and commonly engage in fights. The most aggressive deer species in New Zealand, they often damage and break antlers. 

A mature buck could have up to 25 points and have a distinct palmation to their antlers, which alter from buck to buck, making them very unique and individual. No one buck is the same!!!! 

You won't be disappointed after a fallow buck hunt!!

Hunting Season
  • The Fallow Bucks are in hard antler from late February to August. Our most popular time is during the the rut or 'croak' as it is called in New Zealand. This takes place usually from the start of April to the end of April. Bucks can be taken outside of the "croak" as well. Being very aggressive animals, they can damage and even break antlers, so an early season buck is a great trophy.
