No matter what your level of experience, from complete novice to seasoned hunter, we can provided hunting opportunities in various locations across Great Britain, covering areas such as Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean, Somerset and East Anglia.

All of our areas are managed as part of a comprehensive deer management strategy, specifically designed to suit the requirements of each hunting area. Some areas are managed purely to control numbers, other areas are selectively managed to regulate deer numbers, but at the same time maintaining quality trophies up to CIC Gold Medal

The stalking is accompanied and can be taken either, on foot or from high seats. Equipment, including suitable rifles and ammunition are available to hire, but can only be used in accordance with British firearms legislation (see Estate Rifles below)

 

Deer Species
 

Deer numbers in Great Britain have steadily grown over the last 100 years, helped by the increase in woodland area and the escape of non native species, such as Japanese Sika, Chinese Water Deer and Muntjac. The increase in numbers and range is now causing conflict between deer and land users.
