Thread: Red Stags and Grouse over pointers

    Red Stags and Grouse over pointers

    A trustworthy friend of mine is looking for red stag stalking and grouse over pointers in August. I dont know the exact dates he needs but will obviousy be after the 10th.

    He will have accommodation in the Blair Athol area, but the estate has nothing to offer at the time.

    Any decent opportunities out there?

    Thanks

    Not many stags for sale in August, a lot will still be in velvet most estates dont start until September.

    I dont think he is too concerned about clean antlers, just a cull animal for his son. I will double check though

Also leaves the keepers with more time to focus on the grouse if relevant, and the weather conditions won't mean you suddenly get cut off from completing your annual cull.

    to me, culling in velvet makes perfect sense for any deer species. but synthetic stocks...still don't make any sense...
