Cajun boys Chad and Kenneth from Louisiana booked an Aoudad hunt at V Bharre Ranch. First night sitting in a bow stands Chad and guide Tristian Rusk see something approaching the feeder. Chad looked and said,”Damn Tristian, is that a moose?” Laughing Tristian reply, “no but that’s one nasty Fallow Deer.” Chad, who was in search of a trophy Aoudad had to raise his bow a smoke a arrow into this beautiful gold medal Fallow. Chad made a perfect shot. After gathering back at the processing room you can see that Kenneth’s head started to spin. Kenneth had already harvested a beautiful 37″ Sable but could not get over the size of the Fallow. Guide Brad Draughon asked Kenneth,”we are still hunting for Aoudad, right?” Kenneth replies,”you bet, but if one of these big fallow happen to present a shot I might be persuaded the trade some horn for antlers.” The next morning the Aoudad outwitted there hunters. So Brad changed game plans and went moose hunting. Later in the morning Kenneth and Brad find a beautiful spotted fallow bedded. Kenneth fires his 7mm mag connecting with this gold medal Fallow. Congrats guys on your moose….oh sorry your fallow deer hunt! “Gold Medal Fallow Deer!”

More About Fallow Deer
Fallow Deer have been harvested for over 2,000 years. They are very hardy species and extremely adaptable to varying climates. Adult males grow to be 35-38 inches tall from the shoulder, weigh between 174 to 225 pounds, and have a lifespan of 12-20 years.
There are four basic colors that can help fallow hunting enthusiasts identify them. They can be tan or rust colored with white spots, creamy white, very dark brown, or grayish brown.
Their prized antlers are palmated, or flat like those of a moose, with several large tines that grow anywhere from 15” in length to a trophy size of 28” in length. Their meat is very lean (only 5% to 7% fat) and is succulent with a mild venison flavor.
Texas fallow deer hunting can be extremely challenging. These animals are very cautious and will flee immediately once they sense they are being followed. V-Bharre Ranch believes in allowing fallow deer to reach full maturity. This philosophy allows our hunters to harvest huge gold and silver medal Fallow buck.
