Red Deer

The Central European subspecies of red deer is the largest game animal living in our forests, and thus, of Steinwasen Park. They require a large habitat with favorable nutritional conditions like grasses, herbs, field crops and berries, tree bark, green leaves and young shoots. The rutting season takes place from early September to mid-October. Then, at night, you can hear the loud roar of the deer. In late May or June, females produce one and very rarely two offspring. The deer in Steinwasen Park produced abundant offspring this year. The stags have antlers which are shed each year, usually at the end of winter, and start growing, even more impressively, in spring
