    Who says that you can't stalk Deer on Sundays in England, I can assure you that you can.

    Always stalked on 'the Sabbath' in Scotland. Some places you just can't do it for fear of hellfire and brimstone or whatever from the minister and the kirk elders. Otherwise why waste a fine day? If you're stalking all week with guests or busy at the hinds it's good to take the weekend or a day off though. Wouldn't try it in the Outer hebrides though as they can be crazy about Sabbath observance...crazy 'Wee Frees'.

    thought on the basc site it states no game to be shot in england on a sunday deer are game are they not

    Deer are only game for the purposes of the now defunct game licence (still in effect in Scotland)

    otherwise they are not game

    See here:
