An Introduction to Woodland Deer Stalking


BASC deer officer Lewis Thornley offers an introduction to woodland stalking. Deer stalking is a vital way of helping to manage the expanding deer population. Deer cause serious damage to crops, trees and undergrowth. If a population becomes too large for the local area to support then animals can die of disease and starvation. The venison which results from stalking is a healthy meat which is enjoying a surge in popularity.
