    Deer stalking accompanied outings now available £85 per person. This includes rifle and ammunition. Bookings being taken now for Sussex, weekdays and weekends although weekdays are proving more fruitful.
    A shooting test is required to be passed before live deer can be shot.
    We also provide training courses recognised by the Police for FAC applicants and those FAC holders requiring deer stalker training.
    Cost of a 2 day course is £300 (discounts for small groups) the course includes training material, 2 live stalks and a practical and written test. full training is given.
    Roebucks are currently in season and will be for a while;

    Do you get to keep the meat?

    There is a carcasse fee on some of the estates but not all. I try to keep costs down so no trophy fees normally. If you want the meat and can take it and use it then get on with it!

    Apologies if this is a mong question, but going by 'the only stupid question is the one you don't ask'

    Do you need to hold a FAC already?

    No as long as you are not barred in law (custodial sentence) from using firearms then you can use the estate rifle. We have a few so you get to try them before you shoot.
    The intro stalks are to give you a taster. The 2 day course goes into law, id of deer and meat handling and hygene. The gralloch is covered and two stalks are included in the course.
    its great value and recognised by the police as training to allow you to apply for an FAC.
  6. That's not deer stalking, that's CQB!
  7. I think I may now know who killed Bambi.
  8. With a neck shot.
  9. Whats the age limit on this 21?

    No lower age limit in law although those under 16 would need to be accompanied by an adult from their family. I'm not jumping through CRB hoops so you will need to be with Dad or an Uncle etc unless your mum is fit and likes the great outdoors.
    I prefer not to let those under 14 take part as its a case of being able to manage with a centrefire rifle.
  11. I'm interested.
    For me and also my son- (14 1/2 but 5ft 9.)
    Never shot deer myself and been many years since I used an FAC weapon
    Son only air rifles
    What are the joining instructions?
    Where are you?- I'm Canterbury

    Yes so they will need to be accompanied by an adult.
