While the Red Deer stag season has now closed in Scotland there is still excellent Red stalking to be had in England and Wales up until April.
The quality of heads and size of red deer there can be very impressive due to good deer management and favorable good habitat.
As well as stalking for cull stags, there can be opportunities to take large trophy stags by special negotiation.
Stalking in the hills and mountains of Cumbria is not unlike stalking in Scotland. The terrain is rugged and the contest between quarry and hunter is often hard fought.
The Red Deer of Thetford Forest are also highly regarded especially by European hunters.
