Deer Stalking

What is Deer Stalking ?

View Locations

Deer stalking is a British term for the stealthy pursuit of deer on foot with intention of hunting for meat, for leisure/trophy, or to control their numbers. As part of wildlife management, just as with rabbiting and boar hunting, the aim of deer stalking is to help reduce crop damage and to obtain venison.

The deerstalker typically uses a high-powered rifle fitted with a telescopic sight and stalks deer at night or during the day. In addition to being an effective method of deer control, deer stalking can also be an enjoyable way to spend time outdoors. For those interested in deer hunting, deer stalking can provide an opportunity to pursue game in a challenging and rewarding way.

Deer stalking is an activity that many deer hunters enjoy. There are a few things to keep in mind when deer stalking, however, in order to ensure a successful hunt. First and foremost, it is important to scout the area before deer stalking. This will help you to find the best location for a high seat, as well as identify any areas where deer stalking would be unsafe due to farm traffic or public access.

How Long Does a Deer Hunt Last?

Typically, a hunt will last a full morning, a full afternoon, or all day. It is up to you and your party how long a deer hunt will last, although we will not hunt throughout the night unless a licence has been acquired.

Lots of our customers decide to stay for a few days or over the weekend. This will give you the most time out in our beautiful natural landscapes.
