    Fallow are basically a long legged, long necked sheep .
    Average weight ....
    Doe..... 35-40 kg's (80-90lbs)
    Stag....have dressed out at basically twice that weight.

    Great job Bucky, Those fallow are delicious, I nabbed a Fallow Doe last fall in Eastern Washington (private ranch). :cool:
    she was 130# at 130 yards, dumped her with a 8mm Mauser and 180 grn Nosler Ballistic Tip (my handloads)
