TheHunter: Call of the Wild Wiki

"The roe deer, also called western or European roe deer, is a very common native inhabitant of the European continent. They can be found all over the area, except in the northernmost parts of Scandinavia. Roe deer are a smaller species of deer characterized by their reddish and grey-brown fur. They also make a distinct barking sound when alarmed. Bucks develop antlers up to 0.20 m to 0.30 m (7 - 12 in) in length that typically branch into two, three, or even four points. Roe deer are herbivores, and like to feed on grass and cultivated soil. While primarily a forest animal, they often wander out into fields and areas with more sparse vegetation."
