The British Isles are fortunate to have a diverse population of deer species, from the tiny Muntjac up to large Reds. Controlling the numbers of these species is essential to keep nature in balance. The population control can be for a variety of reasons, from protecting crops, to keeping numbers within a manageable level in order to survive a harsh winter. Deer control is about management and should never about shooting the first deer that comes into sight.
Scotland is home to the finest hill stalking and the challenges that comes with it. The open hills and constant changes in wind direction puts the hunter at the mercy of the elements. Getting into position to take a shot can take several hours, including long periods on your knees crawling and waiting, even then, you may not get to take a shot. However, all these factors are what makes hill stalking for red deer the most challenging and rewarding.
River and Moor works closely with estates on the West Coast of Scotland and the Highlands providing a complete stalking package.
