Day Hunts for fallow deer and red deer

Day hunts for fallow deer and red deer are a good way to get out of town and into the hills amongst some wild deer for the day. Deer hunting is best in the evenings when the deer rise from their bedding areas to feed, alternatively if you are a morning person and don’t mid an early start, morning hunts are available.

Day hunts for wild goat

On a wild goat hunt you can expect to see plenty of billy’s with a wide variety of skin colours. Skins can be tanned for a floor rug or a trophy billy mounted as you please. This is a great option for novice hunters and beginners, goats can be hunted through the middle hours of the day unlike deer hunting.
