Deer Stalking

- It's the excitement of not knowing what's around the next corner -

Deer have been pursued in the British countryside for centuries for both sport and food, with the UK now being home to six species of deer, with only the Red deer and Roe deer being truly indigenous. Fallow deer were almost certainly introduced by the Normans, whilst three Asiatic species; Muntjac, Chinese water deer, and Sika deer arrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries gaining access to the British countryside having escaped from various deer parks.
