The small deer species lives in the jungles in Mexico, South America, ranging from northern Argentina to Colombia and the Guianas. It also occurs on the island of Trinidad in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. This is one of the most coveted trophies in all of Mexico and North America for the international hunter.

I believe it´s a Mazama, or Brocket deer.

Africa 5 times, USA - most western states including Alaska and Hawaii.
I saw a tiny adult buck deer in Ecuador very similar, if not pretty much identical to your photo.
Except that, it seems like my dodgy memory recalls it as also having barely visible tusks, like a miniature version of the Chinese Water Deer, only with red fur and just the very tip of the tusks showing.
In Spanish I believe the name of it was "Pudu" and considered a rare / protected species there.

A Brocket deer no doubt.....I am not sure if it is a red Brocket.....at first glance and the taxonomy of the pictured animal loocks like a Brown Brocket Deer but really is to red......I am not sure.

There are tree diferent Brocket Deer species.....Red Brocket, Brown Brocket and the rare and elusive Dwarft Brocket Deer....

This is a post I have posted some time ago about the Brown Brocket Deer......

http://www.africahunting.com/threads/brown-brocket-deer-hunting-in-argentina.16425/

I am very happy to see some people interested in this not ussual trophies.....


Some Red Brockets.....is the bigger one of the family and note the face y very different than the Brown one

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
