    Good luck in your hunt donít think there are many spots in Wales, best chance is on the Shropshire boarder or along the river Wye.

    I think it is very sparse, I live just over the border in north Herefordshire and we have a few.
    Better ask Stone he used to live in Mid Wales.

    There's plenty of deer in some areas it's just very hard getting onto the ground.

    Twenty years ago there were just fallow in Wales based on the Wye Valley, Coed y Brenin, Elwy Valley, Margam Abbey and Golden Grove.

    Now most parts of Wales have some wild deer and we have reds, roe and muntjac too but they are either localised or thin on the ground and stalking opportunities outside the Forestry Commission are few and far between.

    The FC are shooting roe on sight which isn't going to help but will spread them faster.

    might help if you say which areas you were looking at
    as some areas of wales are a little lacking in deer as Paul has mentioned
    i might have a few contacts over the borders for you to ring that may not be as far to travel from you home in search of some stalking

    There is fallow stalking in Pembrokeshire, Gadget.
    I know of two guys who stalk in that area, but don't have contact with them at present.
    Generally stalking in Wales just isn't talked about, it's all a whell kept secret. It's easier to join the mafia than find stalking in Wales. Most of the boys that I know cross the river and stalk in Herefordshire or Wiltshire.
    The forestry commision don't have client stalking in "Wales" but do in the Forest of Dean yet the rangers work out of the same office. I am told it is just policy not to offer client stalking in Wales.
