Here is an opportunity to enjoy stalking Fallow deer in the High Weald of the Kent and Sussex county borders. DeerStalker offers the chance for novice, intermediate or experienced stalkers to benefit from morning or afternoon/evening outings on one of the more picturesque estates in south-east England.
Our Stalking Estate is predominantly managed woodland, both deciduous and conifer; but this ideal deer territory also encompasses large fields of registered organic cereal crops mixed with substantial areas of grass. All-in-all, an ideal environment for deer!
A regular morning stalking session would start just before daylight, with up to one hour sitting in a high seat or other vantage point. After that, approximately a further three hours are spent ‘walking-stalking’. The afternoon/evening sessions operate in reverse: around three hours ‘walking-stalking’, ending up with the last hour of daylight sitting up. This is the usual format, but if stalkers prefer more or less time in high seats, that can certainly be accommodate

|Fallow Does||November 1st||March 31st|
|The Rut - Usually!||end of September||mid November|
In keeping with the best principles of ethical deer management, the DeerStalker stalking programmes offer you the chance to shoot cull animals. From time to time we do take large bucks; but we are not after ‘trophies’, so any particularly good bucks are left to help improve the quality of the local herds.
Whilst we cater for those at any level of stalking experience, DeerStalker particularly specialises in introducing novice stalkers to this fascinating sport. For anyone intending to take the DSC1 course and exams, the DeerStalker ‘Introduction to Stalking’ will be an invaluable help. The following ‘Options and Rates’ information will give you a proposal of how a day out with DeerStalker might be planned. Should you, however, have other ideas, please feel free to contact DeerStalker to discuss them.
