About this hunt

We are restarting hunting with clients on 29th March 2021. Please go to this website for further details: https://basc.org.uk/coronavirus/england/ The ‘First Time Stalker’ package is a two day course for an individual who is looking for a starting point to get into deer stalking. The package is broken down into two parts: Day one encompasses an ABC approach to firearms training for deer stalking. It covers: - The UK’s firearms and wildlife laws - Riflecraft - Firearms safety & good practice. - Recoil management - Shooting positions - Shot placement on deer - Kit preparation - Stalking related equipment. - Rifle Tuition Day two is about getting out into the Field and stalking a deer: - Two stalks in the day; three hours in the morning and then three hours in the evening. - Bushcraft - Species identification - Art of stalking a deer - Deer biology - Tracking - Deer Butchery*. *(Please note that all our deer species are wild/free roaming. Therefore we never give a 100% guarantee that a deer will be shot on the day. Therefore the field gralloch and butchery may not be demonstrated. But we do a 100% guarantee that deer will been seen on the stalks). This is not a classroom based package it is defiantly a practical hands-on outdoor experience. If you are inspired by the Netflix series MeatEater or want to live a Flexitarian lifestyle, cannot find an avenue into hunting, or want to live more self-sufficiently off the land or just want to properly re-engage with Nature and have never hunted before; then this is the ideal package for you.

Excellent two days of action packed stalking.

From the original communications to the farewell, Oliver was a professional guide, superb host and great company. I booked two days with them as the location and price looked ideal: as someone who is new to hunting this year (a few stalks, just done DSC1) I wanted to gain some experience on a few stalks over two days. This trip delivered everything I hoped for and some things I hadn't even considered. The woodland location was beautiful; seeing the sunrise on the second day as we stalked across the lightly frosted ground, listening to the barks of muntjac was an incredible experience. Since zero'ing the rifle on the first morning we'd seen plenty of deer - roe and muntjac with some wonderful roe bucks (out of season of course) within 50 yards. We had many encounters with deer which was what I was hoping for; the chance to watch them through binoculars, by eye, to hear them, and observe their behaviour. Oliver was superb at getting us to the deer, and just as importantly for me, explaining the process behind it. As the second day was drawing to a close I had yet to connect with a deer but after my excitement on day one I was already reflecting on the great experiences I'd had so far, and that if I went home without a deer I was already happy to have had the chance to see and hear so much, and to practise stalking up to deer on several occasions. The learning outcome was already invaluable. However, as the sun was preparing to slip behind the hills Oliver suggested one more stake out in the woods. We set up in a promising looking ride to patiently wait for a roe doe that might come out before sunset. Twenty minutes later, nothing. Then some movement, and a lovey doe stepped out into the ride. Broadside on, maybe just 60-70 yards out, I made the shot and was delighted to see her drop right away. I really liked the efficient field graloch demonstrated by Oliver, which lead to an interesting chat about keeping it simple. I now had a fantastic conditioned deer for the freezer which I had hoped for but of course you can't guarantee; so yes you could say I was over the moon! This was an action packed couple of days. The location was ideal - plenty of deer, but Oliver's knowledge and fieldcraft, and professional approach but with plenty of good chatter really made this a special experience.

There wasn't one moment of this experience when I wasn't having a good time.

First Time Tester Experience

How professional, knowledgable, friendly and open the guide was and his weapon selection.

That there was nothing to show for after the shoot, however the experience was great.

Amazing experience

We had a brilliant day,the knowledge Oliver passes on is second to non,Oliver will do his upmost to get you into position for a shot and he did exactly that! But don’t think you can’t work for it! You’ve got to put an equal amount of effort in to really make sure you get the most out of the day

That it’s over! However I’m 100% going to be booking again very soon

Memories that will last a lifetime

This hunt was a present for my husband’s birthday as it was his dream for a while to go hunting. It was the best present he could have wished for. He was over the moon especially after meeting Oliver. Oliver is extremely knowledgeable about hunting and on the first day he was teaching my husband how and where to shoot, on the second day they went in the woods hunting. My husband managed to hunt a doe with Oliver’s support. My husband said it was the best weekend that he will remember for the rest of his life, Oliver is an amazing, experienced, professional, kind and funny hunter and I will buy this experience for my husband again. Thank you Oliver for making this so special

Checking off my bucked list

My son and i went for a hunt with oliver. It was an amazing experience for us both. We saw the beautiful countryside of cotswold and wildlife (fox, owl, deer, fesant, patrich, ...) and oliver was open in his information/respect for the wildlife and what it takes to be a hunter. My 12 year old son was very well integrated in the hunt. A new generation of hunter is born. I can recommend oliver to anyone. We will be back! Thanks oliver from sébastien and me

First time stalking

I really enjoyed all parts of my hunt, zero-ing the rifle and the hunts. Stalking roe deer was a great experience, we got very close to some of them and watched as they traveled or grazed. Oliver has a lot of knowledge of the area and the animals there, he was very good at getting us close to the animals so we could get better views or take the shot.This hunt was great for me I learned a lot of things to try and will be back eventually. Highly recommend booking a hunt and getting out there.

2 days - excellent experience

Having completed the two day course, with Oliver, I can highly recommend him as a guide and an instructor. This course was exactly what I’ve been searching for. The training was hands on and relevant, all my questions were answered succinctly and further elaboration was offered. The area is outstanding and we were treated to some awesome sights. We had plenty of encounters over the two days, including a pair of deer mating, a pair of deer rutting and as the light faded we saw a large heard of the mythical Fallow just on the tree line of a not too distant wood. The equipment was top notch and I was fortunate enough to go home with a cooler full of high quality dinners, that will keep me going for a while. I would definitely return to learn more from Oliver. As a teacher myself I recognise deep knowledge that has been earned through years of experience and the skill and passion that it takes to impart that information and wisdom on to others. Oliver has the skills and passion in abundance!

It was unbearably hot on the 2 days we stalked, but that was way outside anyone’s control. I never heard a single complaint from Oliver though, he just got his head down and soldiered through it like it was nothing!

Top quality a Deer Stalking experience.

Highly knowledgeable guide who made the Stalking both interesting and enjoyable.

We didn't make a kill, but that was down to fate rather than lack of opportunity.

Impeccable Guided Hunt

First time out on a guided hunt, and Oliver proved a wonderful guide at every turn. - well prepared - expert knowledge of animal behaviour and happy to share his knowledge - clear and communicative at every stage of the hunting process - committed to the ethics of hunting - perfection in teaching and guidance, he knew exactly when to intervene and correct, and when to allow me to learn on my own In summary, everything about the experience showed that Oliver is a master of his craft, and was willing and eager to share that with me. Absolutely recommended.

A true professional

Oliver was a great teacher and hunting guide, talking me through every bit of the process and answering all my questions along the way. Even though we saw a fair few does (and one buck!) we couldn’t make a safe shot on the day, but that hasn’t taken away from the fantastic experience at all! It just proves how seriously Oliver takes his job, taking into account animal welfare, the safety of the hunter and others in the surrounding area, as well as ensuring the hunt doesn’t turn into hours of tracking wounded animals down. I’ll be back soon to give it another go...

15 Deer 3 Different UK Species

I have hunted with ESC on many occasions. The host knows the ground well and knows how the deer behave throughout the year and in varying weather conditions. On every occasion my host has found trophy grade animals during the hunt and often more than one during a morning and evening.
