Beginners Deer Stalking Courses
Deer stalking courses for beginners and novices who want to experience truly wild and sustainable country sports with the unpredictability that it brings
Introduction to beginners Deer stalking
Deer stalking is a fast growing sport but many do not know how or where to start. Our deer stalking courses for beginners and novices are designed to introduce what wild deer stalking is all about and provide you with the confidence to move forward and take it up full time. We will talk to you about firearms and safety, bullet placement and target practice, animal recognition and differentiating sexes, anatomy, fieldcraft and butchering, giving you the experience of truly wild and sustainable country sports with the unpredictability that it brings.
Our courses run over 4 days which we have found to be a worthwhile number of days given it is our intention to place you in front of as many deer as possible, to allow you the opportunity to build confidence and competency in your shooting.
Our experiences are 4 days long and you will be stalking every day, fully accompanied at all times by one of our stalking guides.
Our EstatesWe stalk Roe Deer on lowland estates in Angus & Fife, and Red Deer on estates in Perthshire and the Highlands. Our destination each day will be dependent on weather, time of day, daylight and past sightings. We may start the day in pursuit of one animal and if the opportunity arises we may go in search of another. The beauty and drive of this sport is it’s unpredictable nature and the knowledge of your guides who have an incredible understanding the land and the animal.

We are in rural Scotland where temperatures can vary and as an active sport that can see you trekking for miles and then sitting awaiting activity, it is vital to dress appropriately. The essentials we recommend include:
- Walking boots
- Waterproof over trousers
- Hat & gloves
- We always stress that cammo clothing is not required, dark colours will suffice.
