Easton's Bible Dictionary

Deuteronomy 14:5 (RSV, "Wild goat"); 1 Kings 4:23 (RSV, "roebucks"). This animal, called in Hebrew yahmur, from a word meaning "to be red," is regarded by some as the common fallow-deer, the Cervus dama, which is said to be found very generally over Western and Southern Asia. It is called "fallow" from its pale-red or yellow colour. Some interpreters, however, regard the name as designating the bubale, Antelope bubale, the "wild cow" of North Africa, which is about the size of a stag, like the hartebeest of South Africa. A species of deer has been found at Mount Carmel which is called yahmur by the Arabs. It is said to be similar to the European roebuck.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

(called fallow from its reddish-brown color) (Hebrew yachmur). The Hebrew word, which is mentioned only in ( Deuteronomy 14:5 ) and 1 Kings 4:23 probably denotes the Alcelaphus bubalis (the bubale or wild cow) of Barbary and North Africa. It is about the size of a stag, and lives in herds. It is almost exactly like the European roebuck, and is valued for its venison.
