Shooting - Deer Stalking

Deer on Exmoor

Deer Stalking

Deer can cause considerable damage to farm and timber crops as well as to natural heritage interests, especially where their numbers exceed the available food supply. To reduce damage and to ensure that the population remains balanced and healthy, deer stalkers primarily use rifles to cull individual animals. The cull will focus on females to reduce the number of offspring produced. Any old or weak deer will be taken as a priority. Deer stalking is a specific skill and responsible deer stalkers will have a good understanding about the shoot location, safety and legal aspect.

When: dawn / dusk
Where: woodlands / field margins
Equipment: rifle and scope, sound moderator, binoculars 
Notes: a stalker will be present on the shoot
