Muntjac Deer Stalking

muntjacThe Indian Sub species of Muntjac was first introduced into the UK at Woburn Abbey, Bedfordshire in 1893 by the Duke of Bedford, before subsequently being replaced by the secretive and diminutive little 'Reeves Muntjac'.

After several deliberate releases and many escapes the 'Reeves Muntjac' has now colonised much of southern England. There expansion and ever increasing numbers, can in part be put down to the fact that they are the only deer species in the UK to be able to breed all year round, with does being able to give birth every 7 months!   

Notable for having visible canine tusks and typically weighing only around 10- 20kg on the hoof they are one of the UK's smallest and most primitive deer species.

Muntjac make for some challenging and exciting deer stalking, which often involves stalking through thick cover and dense woodland. At County Deer Stalking we have good numbers of Muntjac and due to there being no closed season we are able to offer Muntjac deer stalking all year round at our Estates in Hampshire and Oxfordshire.  

In addition to Muntjac we also have good numbers of Roe and Fallow Deer.
