DEER BELLING FORAY
an easy trekking into the Tuscan wild life
From September to October is the Deer reproduction period. Male deer use to make strong noise (Bell in English and Bramito in Italian) to call girls from around and to keep away the other males.
Male deer, called bucks, are easily recognizable in the summer and fall by their prominent set of antlers, which are grown annually and fall off in the winter. Only the bucks grow antlers, which bear a number of tines, or sharp points. During the mating season, also called the rut, bucks fight over territory by using their antlers in sparring matches.
Female deer, called does, give birth to one to three young at a time, usually in May or June and after a gestation period of seven months. Young deer, called fawns, wear a reddish-brown coat with white spots that helps them blend in with the forest.
Where, when and what we do?
The walk we propose is easy but very suggestive and usually take place in the wild natural park of Foreste Casentinesi.
The walk start before sunset and take one hour and half. After the walking is possible (booking before)have a nice relax doing a food tasting in a agriturismo placed close to the park.
