Description
These female deer are often found alongside a male. They're very timid animals by nature, but they tend to let their guard down when eating apples, a favorite food. This tidbit of information can be useful to hunters.

A Mountain Doe is a large female deer covered in shaggy brown fur speckled with light spots along the back. It is a quadruped that stands on thin, muscular legs, each one ending in a cloven hoof. The Doe’s face has drab fur running down its snout and thick brows of the same color above its small, beady eyes. Its rear and tail are covered in fluffy white fur that appear prominent when the Doe is running.

Mountain Doe are female counterparts to Mountain Bucks. They can be distinguished from by by their lack of antlers and drab-colored chests. Doe can be found throughout deciduous areas in Hyrule, usually in the presence of a Buck, suggesting they are maintained in harems. The Hyrule Compendium notes Hyrule Field and the Lanayru Great Spring as areas where Mountain Doe are common, but in actuality they are native to most regions, including Faron and Akkala. Despite their size, Mountain Doe are skittish animals with very sensitive ears: the slightest detection of sound causes them to freeze in place before abruptly running away. When idle, Doe can be seen grazing and may even lie down to rest. They have a preference for apples and tend to drop their guard when eating them.[1]

If Link is stealthy enough, he may be able to mount and ride a Mountain Doe as if it were a wild horse. Though fast, their utility is limited and they cannot be registered at the stables. A successful hunts on Mountain Doe supplies Link with Raw Prime Meat, but their skittishness makes this difficult. The challenge is made most apparent in the Deer Hunting minigame maintained by Dantz, found south of Hateno Village. When Link completes this minigame, Dantz will award him with Rupees.
