Courses are run from 21st October until mid-March and last 4-5 days. You will be stalking every day, fully accompanied at all times by one of our team of stalkers.

  • Species identification and seasons
  • Firearm safety and target practice
  • Clothing and equipment
  • Fieldcraft and management
  • Carcass preparation and butchering

The courses represent a good introduction for those who may want to go on and apply for a British Deer Society Level 1 course.

Our intention is to share the passion for stalking with those who enjoy truly wild country sports with the unpredictability that it brings.

That passion was once summed up by a hunting colleague from Poland – ‘there are only two types of days to go hunting: good ones and really good ones!’

The holidays are costed to include all stalking, training and transport on stalking outings. Each course comes with one stalker who may be shared between two people to reduce the cost.

You can choose to stay in Woodmill House on a fully inclusive house-guest basis, or at a local B&B.

Transfers from the airport/point of arrival can be arranged, as well as rifle hire and permits.

For further details and prices please fill in and send us an Enquiry Form and we will get back to you with a plan for your holiday.

The butchery process

Once you have shot your first deer we instruct you in the basics of butchering.  Each course allows for one roe carcass to be taken home.
