An early morning stalk in a snowy landscape. The stalkers discuss tactics and survey the horizon. A small herd of sika is quickly sighted and one of the number despatched. Sika were introduced in 1860 from the Far East and need careful management to protect the local habitat. The film captures the atmosphere of expectation as the sun breaks through the snowy clouds and finishes at the game dealer with the quarry being readied to enter the food chain.
