Thread: Names for fallow bucks

  1. #1

    Names for fallow bucks

    When I did my DSC 1 - some years back now - I was told that old time foresters used to have all sorts of colourful names for fallow bucks according to their level of development: brocket, pricket and so on.

    Can anybody out there refresh my memory, please?

    Thanks

    In the case of fallow I think it's pricket, sorel, sore, bare buck and master buck? 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years respectively.

    Brocket is red deer I think?

    I think it depends on what part of the world you come from ( I think)

    This is what I was told;

    BUCK - The male fallow deer.
    PRICKET or SPIKER - A buck in its second year.
    SORREL - A buck in its third year.
    SOARor SORE - A buck in its fourth year.
    BARE BUCK - A buck in it's fifth year
    DOE - A female fallow deer.
    TEG - A doe in its second year.
    FAWN - A young (first year) fallow deer.
    WEANER - A slightly older fawn.
