The red deer in Dumfries and Galloway are renowned for their size. We have retained the services of an expert stalker who, given enough warning, should be able to accommodate small parties both for stalking stags (1st July to 20th October) and hinds (21st October to 15th Feb). He would accompany you throughout and act as your stalker. You would be responsible for negotiating and paying for stalking with him. Once a commitment to go stalking on a particular day has been made you will be financially committed.
