Last minute stag hunting in Scotland

Red deer stag hunting in Scotland is a highly sought after and exclusive activity at the best of times, but this year more that than most, availability is extremely scarce. As I mentioned in an earlier article back in April, the quotas for deer management have been set far too high for a number of years meaning that this year they have been drastically reduced and availability has been for the most part almost non-existent….. until now!

One of our favourite estates in Highland Perthshire has just taken over management of a new patch of land so we now have availability for red stag hunting from the end of August until the end of the stag hunting season on 20th October.

We have full weeks of stag hunting available as well as individual days here and there. The estate is in a beautiful part of Highland Perthshire near Loch Tay and is only about 1 our 40 minutes’ drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow Airport meaning it is exceptionally convenient for international hunters who’d like a quick hunting trip in Scotland.

The walking, like most stag hunting, is challenging but it is doable for all who have a decent level of fitness (unlike a few of our estates that are for the extremely fit only) and the estate stalkers are all exceptionally knowledgeable and great company. A day of hunting here is truly a memorable occasion.

This availability will not last long so if you’d like to book a red deer stag hunting trip in Scotland for this season then its best to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. I can say with confidence that, this late in the season, you will not find any where else that has any hunting availability left.

The best way to get in touch is to email me on or to fill in one of our online enquiry forms on the right hand side of this page.

As well as stag hunting, we are also still taking bookings for this year’s salmon fishing season and for wing bird shooting (beginning 01st September). From the 20th October red deer hind hunting starts as well as roe doe hunting for which we have plenty of availability.

We look forward to hearing from you!
