A day stalking red deer on a 23,000 acre estate in Skye, with the stalkers striding through streams, wading rivers, clambering over rocky terrain, crawling across moorland and through boggy reeds. If you’ve been stalking before you’ll be familiar with the readying of kit, the atmosphere of growing anticipation and the still, steady watching of the herd. If you’re new to stalking then you’ll discover some of what you can expect.
The skills the stalker needs are clearly apparent as is the muscle required to carry the quarry down off the hill. Final footage shows the preparation of the carcass, before it is collected by a game dealer to carry on its journey into the food chain.
