The red deer is the fourth-largest deer species behind moose, elk and sambar deer. European red deer have a relatively long tail compared to their Asian and North American relatives.

The impressive antlers are an exceptional trophy for every hunter.

Red Deer react quickly to movement, and have good sense of smell, eyesight and hearing. When approaching, hunt into the wind, quietly and take advantage of cover if possible.
