Fallow-deer in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(called fallow from its reddish-brown color) (Heb. yachmur).
The Hebrew word, which is mentioned only in De 14:5 and 1Kin
probably denotes the Alcelaphus bubalis (the bubale or
wild cow) of Barbary and North Africa. It is about the size of
a stag, and lives in herds. It is almost exactly like the
European roebuck, and is valued for its venison.
