If you are not familiar with the UK species of deer, please read below to find out a brief description of our deer in Suffolk.

Our estates provide an ideal environment for the deer to thrive in and with the professional management of the lands, they are able to raise some impressive trophy deer. All of our stalkers know their estates like the back of their hands, so you can rest assured that they will be able to guide your deer stalk to the best possible places for a successful day.

You must be selective when shooting deer, our experts will be with you to advise but sometimes in the moment, stalkers tend to shoot first and ask later. You must be prepared that different sized deer come at different prices. If you are unsure, don’t shoot.

Generally we shoot does over stags. Does are the ones who reproduce and keep the numbers at a healthy level. Stags are available to shoot but they may come at a higher price, never shoot if told not to or if you are not willing to pay the price. Also it is generally an ethical move to shoot any deer which looks in poor health or badly wounded.

If you wish to bring a non-shooter you must inform us first and there may be an additional charge. Please do not bring anyone who may act in an unruly, reckless or irresponsible manner.

  • If you are a novice gun our experts can support you every step of the way; knowing how to locate and approach undetected, keeping out of sight and up wind and finally how to place an accurate shot ensuring a swift and successful kill are all key factors in a successful stalk and we are with you every step of the way with professional guidance and support.
  • Tips are not included in quoted prices.
  • No insurance, no shoot. All guns must carry third public liability insurance as standard (If you have insurance included in a fieldsports organisation membership you must ensure your membership is up to date and valid)
  • We must receive all documentation and ID 72 hours prior to the shoot.

Tips:

  • If you are unsure whether to shoot or not, don’t shoot.
  • Deer stalking is not a fashion parade. Wear proper clothing.
  • Avoid after shave, cologne or any strong smelling perfumes.
  • Tread lightly and don’t jump across any puddles, small streams or any other obstacles, deer are very sensitive to sounds and vibrations and you could scare of any that are nearby
