Summer deer management – A Year in the Life of Highland Sport part 2

For around three months of the year, red deer are off the shooting menu. Well, that doesn’t mean that Scottish deerstalker Niall Rowantree can hang up his boots. There is general gamekeeping to do – including dealing with pine martens – there are deer to select for culling, and when a crofter complains that stags are munching a crofter’s pasture, Niall has to steal with the situation – with a rifle.
