The majestic fallow deer possesses exquisite palmate antlers, a unique feature predominantly observed in the male population, setting Dama dama (European fallow deer) apart from other species of antlered game, with the exception of moose.
Other native Central and Southeastern European species include red deer, wild boar, roe deer and Eurasian brown bear, as well as numerous species of small game such as pheasant, waterfowl, quail, woodcock and hare.

The alluring grandeur and selfless nature of the fallow deer trophy mesmerizes enthusiasts, becoming a source of pride for every avid hunter.
