Roe Deer

Capreolus capreolus

Sometimes known as ‘the fairy of the woods’ due to its ability to appear and subsequently disappear, melting into the woods in front of you, the beautiful little roe deer, Capreolus capreolus, is a joy to hunt.

A true gem of a British native; the roe buck should be on every hunter’s wish-list.

Roe Seasons

For roe bucks, the Scottish season runs from 1st April to the 20th October. Roe deer rut in late July and early August, during which time the bucks are far less elusive than usual and will come to a simulated doe mating call. This can make for some really exciting hunting with occasionally more than one buck crashing through the undergrowth in a hurry to be the first to reach the doe! Bucks tend to lie up in cover after the rut, so mid to late August and early September can be unproductive, though we often have good late season success as the cover recedes in October.
