What most people don’t realise is that deerstalking happens everywhere in Britain: the only place in Britain that does not have a wild deer population is Middlesex. Because most deer stalking only takes place in the first 2 and the last 2 hours of the day, most people will never see a sportsman at his work. It is a secret, stealthy operation that requires long planning, a high level of skill, and the best equipment available to do it successfully.
With reviews of the latest product releases, Sporting Rifle magazine is your guide to the equipment you need, and its tips provide make it the expert companion, ready at your elbow with a quiet whisper of advice, that you need to excel in your shooting.
Victorian era dramatist W. S. Gilbert said, "Deer-stalking would be a very fine sport if only the deer had guns," and critics of the sport cite this as a summary of all their concerns surrounding the sport, but the truth is that the deer population must be culled to be controlled. Culling is not random: a census of deer is taken out every year, and the animals to be culled are identified. On average per year 30% of dear must be culled to maintain the deer population adequately. Didn’t know that? Read Sporting Rifle, which is now also available as an iPhone app, and discover all the things you ever wanted to know about the skilled and varied sport of shooting. And get one of those hats.
