    Cool deer stalker

    Hi,

    A deer stalker is the kind of hat used by the legendary Mr. Sherlock Holmes right? Can it also mean a deer hunter? Does it have other meanings?

    Yes to both of your questions. The hat was originally worn by hunters while stalking deer, which is how it got its name.

    You are correct, a 'Deerstalker' is the name of a hat. Although someone who stalks/hunts deer could wear a Deerstalker.
