  1. #1

    Stags/Hinds Bucks/Does

    Can anybody tell me why the lager secies of deer are called stags/hinds and the smaller species of deer are called bucks/does.
    Reds stags/hinds
    Sika stags/hinds
    Fallow bucks/does
    Roe bucks/does
    You get my drift??? I have searched and asked various people and organisations but still no answer ??
    So now over to the experts.

    The family is Cervidae

    The sub family is Cervinae

    The Genus is Cervus (This applies to Red, Sika, Elk etc)

    The Species is Cervus elaphus (Red deer)

    All members of the Cervus Genus are Stags and Hinds. All other Genus i.e Fallow are Buck and Doe's.

    Fallow belong to the Genus Dama

    Best

    Sika and Fallow are two of the LARGER species of Deer yet are called stags/hinds and bucks/does respectively.
    To further confuse you Moose are called bulls/cows !
