FALLOW DEER RUT 2023 👀 EXCITED BUCK with DOE'S coming into ESTRUS 👀 Dama dama

FALLOW DEER RUT 2023 👀 EXCITED BUCK with DOE'S coming into ESTRUS 👀 Dama dama


A Huge Excited Buck struts, postures, bellows and chases around 15 Doe's coming into Estrus and he wants to mate with all of them!   

He hardly pauses as he warns rival Bucks and constantly checks each Doe to see if she is ready to mate.


Watching the build-up and the Buck's behaviour is fascinating.   He mounts a Doe again and again,  who is almost ready to mate.   As he mounts her, she just takes a step forward and the Buck slips off.  Eventually the Doe will lift her tail and and signal to the Buck that she is ready to mate.

But she's not the only Doe around!  ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡°)

Fantastic captures as always Jane. The Buck looked extremely busy! We’re in the New Forest currently and haven’t spotted one deer yet. 🤦🏻‍♂️. But it’s dreadful weather - the heathland and forest is very soggy or flooded so it’s been difficult to get far. The rain has been torrential. The Rut is over so we might just give up 😃😃
But you managed to get such brilliant footage.
