    Having visited Houghton (and Holkham) as part of the BDS AGM a couple of years ago I can vouch for the fact that this promises to be a fascinating day. With reds, fallow, hog, Pere David and other deer on site at Houghton it gives a great opportunity to take some photos and to learn about their world-leading deer breeding program. If your interest in deer goes beyond just shooting them, this shouldn't be missed.

    Sadly I am otherwise committed that day, otherwise I'd definitely have made the trip from Oxfordshire
