Deer Rut Season Starts in Beautiful Hungarian Forests – Gallery!

Fanni Kaszás 2019.09.23.

Fall is always a great time to go on a hike, as there are fewer lovelier things than the cooler and shorter days, the changing of the leaves with the beautiful autumn colors, and the beautiful Hungarian national parks, forests, and mountain ranges in their full autumn glory. 

The mating season, the rut of the deer, has also started in Hungary. During the rut, males often rub their antlers or horns on trees or shrubs, fight with each other, wallow in mud or dust. These displays make the male conspicuous and aids in mate selection. We have collected some of the best photos of the stags and deer from the beautiful autumn forests of Hungary.
