Deer stalking is a sporting pastime, but it is also essential to protect forestry and valuable agricultural crops. Deer breed prolifically and suffer from starvation and disease unless they are culled.
To this end, landowners and stalkers usually work in close co-operation with one another to create a plan that balances the welfare of the deer against the damage they can cause if allowed to breed unchecked.
The responsible stalker will know and understand all the laws applicable to the sport and will act with safety as a primary concern. Shooting UK regularly publishes articles from a pool of deer stalking experts covering every aspect of stalking including: safety, rifles, ammunition, equipment, clothing, techniques and finally some recipes for venison dishes. You can read them here with regular updates.
