    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?

    Re: deer stalker

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

    Re: deer stalker

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