The White Stag in Falkreath Hold

The White Stag is a unique animal which appears during the quest Ill Met By Moonlight. It's much larger than a normal deer, and its fur is much lighter as well.

According to Sinding, the stag roams Falkreath Hold while Hircine awaits a hunter skilled enough to kill it. However, the stag does not appear until the related quest is started.

After killing it, the Aspect of Hircine will appear over its corpse. You must speak with it to continue the quest.
