Well, most unfortunately, the early Celts didn't leave written records to tell us as much as we'd like to know about Cernunnos. But being as He is associated with wild animals, it is perhaps appropriate that we only catch glimpses of Him, as through a dimly-lit forest.
There's some reasonably scholarly suppositions out there on the Internet.
