Stalking Fallow by John Thornley
Fallow deer are acknowledged as being one of the most difficult of the six species of deer in the UK to manage effectively. Stalking Fallow is an extensive guide to the management and techniques of stalking fallow deer from the perspective of not only the deer stalker but also the deer manager and the landowner.
It provides a unique insight into stalking both woodland and open ground and the techniques in the use of high seats. Covering all aspects of fallow deer management and their natural history, it includes how to organise and manage collaborative team culls, recognise and prevent crop damage, and take into account any health and safety issues, and disease identification.
Stalking Fallow is beautifully illustrated throughout by renowned wildlife artist Ian MacGillivray, and is an essential definitive guide for all associated with the management of fallow deer.
