JB,

Over here in the UK, the Fallow more or less fills the same role as your Whitetail.
I have stalked them often, but much prefer stalking our Roe deer. A friend manages the Fallow in a local deer park and the bucks in their a very impressive. They have the common
variety and also the black phase as well.
If the Fallow in your area are "wild" rather than "deer park tame", they can be a challenging hunt and the the bonus is that the venison is excellent!

regards,

Pete

I have hunted them in the Wild of NZ and behind the fence here in the States> they are about like white tail. They can be a true challenge to hunt and what a rush to catch them scraping it out in the rut.
here is the one I got In NZ mounted in Bangkok!

Yes it’s a good hunt, but if your neighbors property has a high fence it might be illegal to take shots at them.
