Of the males really confused me when (years ago) I spent a lot of time with a real deer enthusiast. From year one onwards, annually -
If they survive this far, they can then become a Great Buck.
Females are simply called "Does".
You missed weaner, a fawn after it changes out of its very spotty first coat.
Also does can be called tegs before giving birth for the first time.
Note: this goes for fallow only, other deer species can have different names, e.g. hart and hind for red deer.

For some reason was never used amongst the people I knew in Worcestershire. Pigs, yes, deer, no.
"Teg" is something I've heard applied to sheep, never before to deer. What a lot of names we have for animals!
You're right we love giving names to things, and it depends where you come from.
So many names!Complicated but very interesting.Thanks for all the extra info added.
