Deer hunting or stalking as it is known as in Europe is a very traditional past time. The main species of interest are roe, red, fallow, muntjac, sika and Chinese water weer, there are also opportunities to shoot other rare species in very limited numbers. For the more adventurous we have the highlands of Scotland where there is nothing more majestic than a day on the hill in pursuit of a roaring red deer with your stalker. For those after a gentler hunt there are the Home Counties of southern England offer fantastic stalking for the lowland species.

Meet with the stalker at the arranged time and location. If required visit the rifle range to confirm your ability to shoot or to check the zero of your rifle.
