How do you whistle in a sika stag? It’s the sika rut in North-West Scotland. Deer manager John Dodd takes two guests out to stalk them.
The guests have packed their rifles. Both of them are using Blaser R8. If you are planning a similar trip and you pack two other vital accessories for woodland sika stalking, they are a thermal spotter and a good dog. One’s to find the animal when it’s alive, the other to find it after you have shot it.
John takes He Li from Shooterking (above) and Michael Brown from Blaser (below). Watch both films here.
