Rut


Red Deer
Red Deer are animals that take part in a Rut during the breeding season


The Rut, also known as the Rutting Season or the Rutting Period, is the period of time when antlered ungulates mate. Ungulates include deer, sheep, goats and antelope.


During the Rut, males often rub their antlers or horns on trees or shrubs, fight with each other and pursue females.
