This year Country Sport Scotland is exhibiting at The GWCT Scottish Game Fair from 1-3 July at Scone Palace, and at The Game Fair from 29-31 July at Ragley Hall.

They are excited to announce their exclusive game fair giveaway, which is in collaboration with South Ayrshire Stalking. The prize includes a roe deer stalking experience in Ayrshire, Scotland, with overnight accommodation and breakfast, plus use of the estate’s rifle and ammunition.

Full prize details include:

  • The Introduction to Stalking Experience is designed for everyone who is searching for a path to understand the ethos, ethics and practical skills needed to sustainably harvest the land and provide delicious healthy food.
  • You will learn why we hunt, an ethos based on respect, the principles of fair chase and the balance that sound wildlife management brings.
  • You’ll begin to understand the principles and philosophy of deer management and the practical hunting skills to safely hunt and provide sustainable, healthy supply of meat into the food chain.
  • We’ll then look to develop your practical hunting skills. This would typically include a safety demonstration and introducing you to your hunting rifle. A session on the range and we’ll have you accurately firing the rifle at a target, and then once you’re comfortable with this we go out into the wilds.
  • We’ll guide you step by step on your hunt, explaining the nature of the deer, how we use the terrain to our advantage and other practical techniques you’ll need as a hunter, as we try to find a suitable deer to take. The next steps will be up to you.
  • With luck on our side, you will be successful, and you’ll have taken your deer. After some time for reflection we can then show you how we “gralloch” the animal in the field and give you a butchery demonstration converting the carcass into usual joints of meat and other products for the table.
  • No previous experience is required and we can cater for all levels of fitness.
  • The hunt will be on roe does in Ayrshire, Scotland. Timing wise we’ll work with you to agree suitable dates but conceding with the doe season this will be at the back end of the year.
