Rutting season in Hoge Veluwe - Hinds and stag (Photo blog)
During the rutting season the males, known as stags, leave their male herds and will search for females. The females also live in herds and are called hinds. At that time male red deers will have impressive antlers and they will grow a short neck mane. They start belling and fighting with other males to impress the hinds.
