Red Deer rut photography safaris

Red Deer Rut

For pure adrenaline and primal natural experiences, the annual Red Deer rut in autumn possibly can’t be beaten in the UK.
This off-road photographic safari utilizes local knowledge of where the stags are and where the thick of the action is. A combination of driving and walking you could be in a vehicle right next to jousting stag’s or stalking them via a scrub line. Of course nothing is guaranteed but with the stags having 12 times the amount of testosterone coursing through them, it is rarely peaceful!

Available only from 23rd September to 17th October.

All current corona virus restrictions will be adhered to and observed.

What
People Say

David is a rare beast; an old-school naturalist with a way with animals, and people. If it lives and breathes anywhere near his local patch, he probably knows where it is and the best way to get you in front of it.
