Stalking Fallow Deer

Fallow Deer stalking consists of a morning or an evening outings or a full day out. We do not hunt on Saturdays and Sundays.

Before going out stalking you will be asked to shoot at a target to ensure that you are comfortable with the rifle and that the rifle is accurate. Targets are positioned usually at a distance of 100 metres.

Donnie will know the best places to walk up to locate your deer depending on wind direction and prevailing conditions. Please note that the deer are wild and we cannot guarantee that there will always be an opportunity for a shot.

Once the fallow deer have been located, Donnie will select a buck or doe that, in his opinion, is suitable to be culled. Once you have reached a suitable distance from the group the selected buck, doe or calf will be described to you. When the target is standing correctly a shot can be taken.

After a successful shot has been taken your deer will be collected and brought back to the farm.

Accommodation is available on our estate for sporting holidays, both in The Farmhouse and in the Ardbeg Cottage. If you are interested in stalking, please contact Donnie or Florian here.
