2,500 to shoot one of these fallow. Is this a good deal or is there better for this price? I have never hunted for this breed so any suggestions are welcomed. I am thinking the chocolate but wanted some other opinions. so chocolate or the spotted? Pics are not the best but you can at least see them.




If I put my wife in a high fence will her rack get bigger?

That's a pretty spotted fallow. I've always loved a good lookin' chocolate though. It's the 2500 dollar question??? Do I pull the trigger or not?

It's a little tough to tell on the size they look nice but I can't tell how nice. 2500 is a little higher than average for fallow but it depends how big the are.

X2 on bbd84's words. 2500 is a pretty good price, not a steal from the looks of things. If he gets into silver or gold status then it's a pretty good deal based in what good fallow have run live sale last time I checked. Personally from the pics spotted for the win!

As far as is it a good deal or not, I look at the the entire hunt as well as the taking of the animal. $2,500.00 for a 2-3 day hunt where you get the experience of hunting, being outdoors and being challenged along with the bringing home a trophy is a good value. To go sit in a blind for an hour or two, shoot the trophy and go home would not be worth the money to me.

If that was our ranch I'd charge less than $2500 for him. But like others have said its all relative. If you're at a 5 star lodge and having a blast then it's worthy of the bill. I'd see what history they had of killing animals in the past and try to compare their "average" trophy to those then base my decision on that. Base your price off of experience and the animal combined. Best of luck and be sure to post pics.

I would pass on both. The spotted looks a little young and short beams. The chocolate photo is just took poor to tell.

thank you everyone. I know the guide I have been hunting with him on three different trips. I will have a good time and it is a 5 star place to stay notg to mention I will be there with my father. I can get anouther white tail from him or take one of these fallow thats what I was wonderig either way I will go kill something just a matter what. I dont want to pay 2500 dollars if this was a rip off. so I will enjoy myself no questions asked but is 2500 worth this fallow? here are a few more pics of it not that great but maybe yall can get a better idea of it and if its worth the 2500.

IMHO no, the spotted one heck no and the choc looks to have a nice palm but its split and not that big. If it was me i wouldnt pay 2500$ for either of those bucks.

I'm still on same opinion. The spotted looks like he's got horns of a typical two year old. And if he's not two years old, he needs to be culled out quickly, but not worth $2500 or half that even. Looks like his bez and browse tines are not long either and short on beam length.

The chocolate has split palms and at best it may hit 4" palms. The splits are just secondary palmated tines and the palmation is not scored on those but off the main beams. It can be confusing. He's got a nice spread and he appears mature, but in my opinion, that is genetic and he will have that very similar horn feature next year and even pass it on to the other fallows. When I used to breed them you could see it come out that way. Been there..done that. That is a management fallow buck and not worth $2500 IMHO.

Living in Bandera County and building fence and installing elec gates ect the past 25 or more years and having run a number of ranches in all three adjoining counties..I have some exp. w/Fallows..not my chosen choice of game..Once you kill several, you may agree..My buddy in Tarpley had several on his 100 acres
and when he had some fairly good trophies about a yr or two ago he got $1300 ea for them..they gentle like cows..came to his house every day..DD

I'd offer $1500 at best on them. Definitely not a $2500 fallow. Unless he has a $500 a day cost for meals and guides.
