Mature Red Stags begin to arrive on the ground towards the end of September prior to the rut. The early days of our four week season provide challenging stalking with fresh arrivals of stags as yet un-distracted by the rut.
As the season progresses and the rut gets underway one can find oneself stalking “amongst the deer”. Stalking in the open vastness of Caithness can be particularly rewarding, often that which looks impossible will be achieved.
At Strathmore we welcome all stalkers from total novices to the most experienced.
Red stags (Mid September -- 20th October)
Roe bucks A small but increasing roe population permits us to offer roe stalking on an occasional basis ie during a week of grouse shooting. In Scotland roe buck are in season from 1st April until 20th October.
