Roe Deer Stalking
Roe deer stalking is very different from red deer stalking, which takes place on open hillsides. Roe deer stalking is conducted mostly at dawn and dusk when roe deer are moving to and from cover into feeding areas. The stalk is conducted on foot and requires great stealth and patience. A good sense of smell and keen eyesight are also vital. Great care is required and very often a shot has to be taken with a slightly obscured view of the deer.
Sometimes the shot is taken from an elevated seat placed to overlook deer paths or feeding points although stalking on foot is the more classic approach and is recommended for the overall deer stalking experience.
Red Deer Stalking
Red deer stalking plays an important part in rural lifestyles in Scotland. As well as helping control the red deer population, it provides valuable economic benefits to isolated communities across Scotland, especially in the Highlands and Islands.
Red deer stalking is a traditional field sport, and the stalkers who take clients stalking are steeped in tradition. A stalk often takes most of the day as you hike through the mountains to find the deer. The stalker will then select which deer is to be shot, taking account of the health of the herd.
A red deer stalk in Scotland is certainly a special experience, and one which you will never forget.
