New Zealand Fallow Buck Hunting
Fallow bucks, like red stags were also introduced to New Zealand around 150 years ago. They look and behave very differently to red stags. Our fallow bucks contain Hungarian blood and therefore produce magnificent trophies and tasty venison. You can hunt fallow of several colour phases including black (melanistic), common spotted, and pure white, on Glen Dene Station.
Fallow range freely over most of the property, although they tend to prefer areas close to brush and forest where they can seek shelter. The fallow in full flight can outpace any of our game species and only a practiced marksman can hit a fallow on the run.
A shoulder mounted fallow buck with its large palmated antlers is a highly prized trophy.
