    Seriously... BE PATIENT !

    Red deer do not bag up like a cow ! The udders are smallish. For a period prior to giving birth the hind will separate herself from the rest of the herd. One of mine gets quite aggressive if approached by another deer or human.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Mine are flat out now, its impossible to say for sure how many have calved but I have noted down the calving dates for about 25 hinds in my AI group. Two other groups have at least 20 so about 45 ish so far.
