The fallow deer can mostly be seen in southern and central Sweden where they roam in both pine and mixed forests. It feeds mostly on grass and leaves in the summer and heather, lingonberry and blueberry plants, och acorns during fall and winter.
The fallow deer can vary in appearance, but often has a red-brown fur with white dots, black backline and white underbelly. A magnificent fallow deer stag can weight up to 100 kg.
The meat is like all wild game lean and tasty and compared to e.g. moose slightly milder in taste.
