Stag hunting is conducted in the traditional manner, normally on a 2:1 basis with our professional stalkers. They will carefully guide you through the terrain using their knowledge and experience in search of a suitable cull animal.
With the benefit of managing seven different hunting areas, and the unpredictability of the Highland weather, we always have an area that will suit adverse conditions, ensuring the best possibility of a stalk. Hunting times will vary depending on whether you are woodland or open hill stalking. To ensure clients have the best deer hunting opportunities, we do recommend a good level of fitness.
We do not advertise as a trophy-hunting outfit but do get some very good quality stags, nevertheless we try to cull old or poor quality stags for the benefit of herd management. We pride ourselves on the unrivalled experience clients will leave with and that we have done all to ensure they have had good opportunities.
Clients will usually arrive at Mingarry Park Guest House on Sunday where they will be warmly welcomed and briefed on the week's deer hunting. Monday morning will be straight to the rifle range where the firearms will be tested to ensure accuracy, then once the stalker is satisfied it's off to the hunting area. Departure is normally on Friday or Saturday allowing four to five days for hunting (if required).
Most clients will take two stags each during their stay although we are flexible depending on one's requirements. We can accommodate for six hunters taking twelve stags during the main rutting weeks in October. During the earlier weeks in August and September we can manage up to six stags. If necessary, travel arrangements can be organised to get you to and from the airport.
As part of the service, we will prepare all trophies ready for client departure and suitable for transit through the airport. We charge £30 per head.
If necessary we can arrange for visitor firearms passes at a fee of £25 each for admininstration. However, to reduce cost and travel problems with firearms, we can offer the use of the stalkers' rifles under their supervision whilst here. Most of our European clients now take this option while deer huting in Scotland.Please contact us for availability and pricing
