Thread: whats your favourite deer to stalk

    whats your favourite deer to stalk

    I have been lucky enough to take 7 different speices of deer in the Uk but out of all of them Roe is my favourite,
    I find them challenging to stalk both in woodland and on open ground,plus there quite easy to carry back
    so whats yours and why ????

    Yes for me its Roe Deer i have shot Reds in good numbers A few sika and lots of roe but if some one asked me out stalking and gave me the choice it would be roe every time.

    I have shot good numbers of all except CWD.
    And I have to say its roe, although a rutting stag or fallow buck gets the blood going.
    Munjac when stalking the ground knowing they are in there somewhere is also very good.

    Definately muntjac. They're easier to carry back to the car, I only have a small freezer, and because they are so small you use them up quicker which means you have to go stalking more often.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Longshot,

    I've not got a favourite yet, but out of interest, what was the 7th species that you've stalked?

    Cheers,

    I can't speak for CWD either but amongst the others it's roe for me too.

    It's hard to put a finger on why but I just find them fascinating animals. Close second would be Sika, when a rutting stag's whistling under a brooding dusk that get's the adrenaline going!

    Longshot.

    I've just googled it - nice looking deer. Sort of similar to a fallow but with red/sika antlers.

    I assume there are none on the Derbyshire / East Staffs border - wishful thinking !!!
