    It is normal at this time following the rut back in October/November for fallow bucks to start getting back into bachelor groups. As for standing around, I am guessing they are not heavily hunted, and could not identify where you were and maybe due to moderator and topography of the ground, and so the safest thing is often to hang around until they can identify where the danger came from. Doesn't usually happen with my fallow but every so often they do get confused where the shot came from and so I can take another one.
