    Deer stalking price advice

    Money aside if you want the deer managed properly I would put it in the hands of a couple of lads that know the score. Bought leases only ever end up one of two ways, nobody goes there or not often enough (Some people like the idea of a lease but havnt a clue what it involves) or the deer are abused to regain the fee charged. Seen it many times with landowners frustrated either way .Quite a few leases around me end up with very poor bucks and far too many week does .I've been asked to shoot does on several leases despite not paying a penny and being at odds with the lease holder. A pair of lads with the right attitude will suit far better IMO

    Good reply Donny .We've had same sort of thing with old air raid shelter covered in sheets of tin .Dog baying was amplified due to space until it bolted much to my disgust .

    Dorset hind cull

    Your right about it being work mate . We did see a stag but were happy to leave it as he was a fine animal . He came to a call but remained in the bracken about 100 yds away . Could of shiot him but we were both happy to watch him instead .

    Dorset hind cull

    Not finished yet lol After collecting the previous days bag from a makeshift chiller and those we had Sunday we headed back to home calling in to my game dealer on the way with 13 deer . Kept back two small hinds and the roe for ourselves . Many thanks mate , an outing not to be forgotten in a hurry

    Dorset hind cull

    This last weekend gone I was lucky enough to accompany Matt down to his patch in beautiful Dorset . He has recently gained more land on the strength of his efforts elsewhere . This new landowner really doesn’t like deer or rather the damage too many can do to natural habitat . The woodland has a perfect mix of deciduous and coniferous plantings at all stage of growth but previous owners have neglected to cull appropriately resulting in a marked browse line and stunted regrowth .we arrived at the ground with minutes to spare before shootable light Inside the wood we both stalked the same top ride , a method that’s worked well before , each scanning a side with bins at a real steady pace . Wasn’t long before Matt spotted two hinds his side and on sticks to neck shoot the pair , cracking start . Next was a roe doe bit further on that met same fate . Around a bend it was my turn and I spotted two more young hinds staring at us from about 60 yds . Eased on the quad sticks and shot the nearest hind in the neck . At this stage I’d like to make it clear sika stalking is one of hardest forms I’ve found and I don’t want anyone to think it was a case of running round shooting deer . The four deer were left at a junction of the ride for collection later with the truck . Down a hill following another ride I spotted a decent group of deer back in under a conifer stand about 100 yds and at first unaware of us . We stalked in to maybe 80yds and both set up on sticks to await any chance presenting itself . I clocked a hind face on and shot her through the neck , quickly followed by another as they milled about . By now they had moved back a bit but refused to move on , whistling alarm instead . Matt shot another through the neck before silence reined once again
