Deer Stalking UK

Deer Stalking is the term used in the UK to refer to Deer Hunting or the stealthy pursuit of deer. Though historically undertaken with the use of dogs modern deer stalking in the UK is typically undertaken with the use of a high powered rifle fitted with a telescopic sight.

Due to the fact that the deers traditional predators such as the Wolf and Lynx no longer roam the British countryside Deer numbers in some areas of the UK have reached near epidemic proportions. The only means of controling these numbers has been controled deer culling.  

As a consequence of the need to cull Deer in the UK there are many opportunities to go Deer Stalking. The result is that many hunters from around the world come to UK shores each year to Stalk Deer. 

Indeed due to the specific seasons there is in fact at least one deer species or another in season 365 days a year! This allows for hunters from the UK and abroad to experience some truly superb deer stalking over a variety of landscapes.
