England Red Deer Hunts

  • Photo at top

Europe Hunts offers the largest Estate Red Deer Hunting in England.  As of recent, we have the #1 SCI English Red Deer with a Muzzle-loader, and many top trophies with a rifle.  Drive just a few hours outside of London and hunt some of the biggest Red Deer in the World!  We offer a wide range of sizes of English Red Stag from Cull Bucks to World Records.  You will see on average 50-100 English Red Stag in a day’s hunt.  Our Guides at Europe Hunts will be looking for exactly what you’re after from a particular World Record England Red Deer to one that may score between 300-350 inches SCI.

We hunt for English Red Deer just outside of London as well as the Norfolk area in Estate areas ranging from 1000 to 2000 acres.  Hunting for Red Deer will be done either via Spot and Stalk hunting or from a High Seat over-looking a grazing area in the mornings and afternoons.

Daily Schedule for Hunting Red Deer

Your Red Stag Hunt typically begins with a light English breakfast at your English Inn, Hotel, or Bed and Breakfast just before daylight.  Your Europe Hunts Guide will meet you at your Inn, and transport you to the hunting grounds around 6:30am so that you will be in the field come sunrise.  By either Spot and Stalk or high seat, you and your guide will start glassing the forests for Trophy Red Stag with Binoculars and via Eye Sight…most of these will be from 100-150 yards, while other times, you will stumble upon a Red Stag quietly grazing in the forest and have a shot without them knowing your presence.  Once you have located a shooter Red Stag, you will either take a rest on shooting sticks, or stalk in closer for the shot.  If you are not successful on taking an English Red Stag in the morning, you will return to your Inn or Hotel for lunch and resume your hunt in the afternoon.

Methods of Hunting Red Stag

In England, we hunt Red Stag with either rifle or Muzzle Loader only…Archery hunting is not permitted in England at this time.  Most Fallow Deer shots are taken from 100-150 yards utilizing rifle calibers comparable to .270.  For those hunters whom are not as mobile, we can also hunt Red Stag from High Seats (Elevated Hunting Blinds).  Red Stag are most active, roaring and rutting, in the early morning or late afternoon.

Taxidermy

Europe Hunts can arrange for you to be put in contact with a preferred taxidermist we use, but after contact is made we take no responsibility of shipping or work undertaken. This is a separate contact between hunter and taxidermist.  We will transport your trophy to our preferred Taxidermist if you wish.  Dip/Ship of your trophies as well as full taxidermy is available.  We will utilize an import/export agent for the shipping of your trophies.

Other Species to Hunt

While Hunting Red Stag, Hunters may also choose to combine with a Chinese Water Deer, Fallow Deer, Muntjac, Sika Deer, Soay Sheep, Blackbuck, or Axis Deer Hunt.  These species can be hunted during the same trip and most combination hunts can be completed in 3-4 days.
