Texas Fallow Deer

The Fallow Deer is native to the Mediterranean region of Europe and Asia Minor. The fallow deer has been introduced to 93 Texas counties, primarily in the Edwards Plateau region. In 1988, the Texas population was estimated to be 14,163, both free-ranging and confined animals combined.

The adult male Fallow Deer stands between 32 and 48 inches high at the shoulder and weighs up to 200 pounds. Fallow Deer antlers are broadly palmated with several small tines and 1 large tine arising from the palm. A good set of antlers will measure at least 28 inches in length with an inside span of 24 inches or more.

Fallow deer in the Hill Country naturally appear in three different color schemes: chocolate, spotted and white. Fallow Venison makes an excellent meal and is considered one of the top three best tasting exotics to eat.
