Nature and relaxation Squall of the deer Peisey-Vallandry


On Saturday 24 September 2022
Peisey-Vallandry (73210)

The mating season has arrived, and the young stags are going to go on an adventure, forgetting all caution to conquer the females.
The old males jealously watch over the herd they have returned to, and try to attract females from the neighbouring herd. These herds can reach up to 30 heads at this time. They have a lot to do day and night: watching the females, mating with the ready ones, discouraging the young males who try to steal the ones that stray. These males without a herd can become very pushy and a fight cannot be avoided.
Intimidation manoeuvres may suffice, as the old males are experienced. Otherwise the sound of antlers clashing resounds through the forest.

In the mountains the deer are easier to see than in the undergrowth, and their bellowing echoes from rock face to rock face.
