Muntjac deer Facts & Photos





These deer originate from the jungles of India, Burma, Laos, Cambodia, and Viet Nam. Also known as the Reeves muntjac named for a prominant British East India Tea Inspector. Populations outside of India Game Parks are unknown.

This is a smaller deer species rarely exceeding 45 lbs. Yet they have long incisor teeth approximately same length as Canadian lynx. Used primarily for fighting other bucks and establishing breeding dominance during the rut. In the mid 1800's several breeding pair were released in England. They thrived and were hunted with hounds by horseback. Many dogs were reputed to have been killed or injured by these fanged deer.

Trophy hunting for muntjac deer is unknown to me.
