Fallow for sure. That's how their horns grow until they are mature enough to start palmating. Plus the tail, Adam's apple, face shape, etc. point to fallow

At what age do they start to palmate usually?

This is one of the smaller ones, I just found one on camera that has a very small amount of palmation so maybe next year. This is a low fence place so very unexpected. There are atleast 15 of them, and only seen 3 of them as doe.

I'd keep them on the dl, so you're neighbors don't have a trapper come out and rid you of the new targets

Without a doubt it's a Fallow, and a sow with piglets.
