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

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

why is it sacriledge to shoot a stag in velvet? if it's cull beasts, spikers, staggies, hummels, knobbers, switch stags, whatever that just needs to be cleared off the ground, who cares? it will leave estates with time to take the big $$$ paying guests in search for the big trophies without having to worry about the cull work, as it's out of the way. 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...

Sacrilege to shoot a stag in velvet :eek::eek:

Cant agree with this. I am sure good deer management allows you to remove cull animals for the benefit of the herd. Why have crap on your ground eating when it should be removed.

I am part of a deer cull in the North and will gladly remove mature animals in velvet, especially when you know they are just switches. Best remove them when you have the chance rather than leave alone and find it kills your nice royal you were looking after ;)

​+1 to that and not getting synthetic stocks! Just not cricket
