The Kashmir Stag or Hangul belongs to the Red Deer family of Europe. It is one of the two races of the Red Deer which are found in this sub-continent the other being the Shou in Bhutan.

The Hangul is listed as an endangered species in the Red Data Book of the international Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). It numbers declined rapidly at an alarming rate during the years following the creation of India and Pakistan in 1947.

It is essentially a forest animal and is found either singly or in small groups of 2 to 16 members. The social system is matriarchal. They are on their home territories in the winter in Lower Dachigam, where the riparian forests are their fawning sites. The low-level winter territory gives more or less direct access to a high-level summer territory, where they go in search of grazing. They return to their home territory for the rutting season and stay there till the calves are born.
