Follow this quest, defeat the dragon and save Birgir. You can find the deer at the end of the quest under the tree next to the mystical gate “The Overgrown Tower”.
The Crater: The Depressions – location of the deer

Follow the path through the cave below. Coming out of the cave, you will see another mystical gate on the other side of the river (The Depression – entrance). swing yourselves across the river with the Chaos Blades – the deer is standing near the gate by the river.
The Jungle – location of the deer

To reach the deer in the jungle, you must first complete the Return of the River favor. Once you’ve flooded the dam, go down, hop on the boat and dock at the mystical gate The Jungle. Changes the time of day at the altar next to the gate – you can only reach the deer during the day.
Then fast travel to Gate “Jungle – Entrance”, get in the boat and head west. Moor at the nearest jetty, defeat the stone-throwing troll, and use the Chaos Blades to swing to the other side of the river. The deer is standing there by a tree.
The Crater: The Plains – Stag at the Wishing Well
- precondition: Completed “Return of the River” fall & defeated stone-throwing troll
As soon as you see the stone-throwing troll opposite the mystical gate “jungle – entrance” (see “The Jungle – Location of the Deer”), go back to the mystical gate and use the Chaos Blades to cross the river to the left of it. There you can now open the locked gate with the chains in peace.
Cross the cave and you get to the wishing well. On the upper level you will meet one of the lost deer.
