Thread: Imperial

    Imperial

    Just wondering how rare an Imperial Red stag is?
    Managed to get one the other day and have been told that it's quite a rare trophy.
    Thanks in advance.

    more common on big forest stags.
    I have seen one or two on the hill but definitely rarer sight on the hill

    Not uncommon in populations with park deer influence i.e. anywhere except the Lakes and SW England south of the border although there are plenty of stags of this size in Devon and Cornwall. In Scotland I think you'd be more likely to find them in woodland areas like Galloway. In Norfolk and the New Forest a 14 pointer would not be at all unusual but there's Warnham blood in those.

    Think I mentioned this before, I was following up Tony W*****, during the Monday afternoon stalk, on the Arran scheme, a good few seasons back, I had elected to let him lead, he had brought with him his brand new, straight out of the box, Sauer ... shot it in that morning, & with his sixth round ... he drops an Imperial just on last light. Did you get any photo's Sako?

    Sakotrg,

    Only ever seen one 14 pointer - shot at Monachyle a few years back, not common on the hill so well done.
