About the Red Deer Stag

In Red Deer, only the male stags have antlers, and they are shed annually, typically at the end of each winter. When Red Deer are born, they are born spotted, as is common with many deer species, but they lose their spots by the end of summer. Red Deer typically like to inhabit open woodlands, grasslands, meadows, and valleys.
