Where to hunt Roe Deer
Roe deer is a small and graceful deer that inhabits the moderate climate belt of Eurasia from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts. Three main subspecies are recognized among hunters. The European roe deer is to be found in European countries from Great Britain and Ireland to Poland and Russia west of the Urals. Asia is home of the slightly bigger Siberian roe deer. Siberian roe deer can be hunted in Kazakhstan, Russia east of the Urals, and other Asian countries, except the Pacific coast south to the Amur, which is the domain of the third subspecies, the Chinese roe deer.
Roe deer hunting starts from about $200 for cull and management hunts in Europe. When you include the trophy fees, a trophy European hunt may total $1,500-$2,000. Roe deer hunts in remote wilderness of Asia start at about $2,000 and may go up to $5,000 depending on accommodation, difficulty of access, and potential trophies.

When to hunt Roe Deer?
Roe deer hunting begins with the early summer stalking season in late May or early June, as the bucks’ antlers are out of velvet. The next good time for roe deer hunting is during the rut, which may take place between mid-July and mid-September, depending on the area. European roe deer begin and end the rut earlier than Siberian roe. By October trophy hunts for roe deer are mostly over, because the bucks begin to drop their antlers, but any-sex driven hunts continue until December, and herd management and cull hunts may be still carried out in January.

In the early season most people hunt roe deer either by stalking, or by waiting on ground or elevated blinds near the places where the animals feed. Alternatively, a hunter (and a guide or gamekeeper) may go still hunting along the forest edge, now stopping in a likely place and wait for the buck to come out of the thicket, then stalking the animals they spot across the field or meadow. Calling is a very effective way of roe deer hunting. Buck alarm calls are used early in the season, when the bucks are fighting over territory. Doe calls are very effective during the rut, especially late in the season, when most does are already out of heat, but the bucks are still active. Calf in distress call is used to attract a doe, either for management hunts, or in hope that the buck that is with the doe will follow her. Driven hunts, with or without dogs, are practiced late in the season, and management and cull hunts are mostly spot-and-stalk.
Why hunt Roe Deer? All hunts (144)
The little roe deer may not be the first animal that you think about when you think about hunting in Europe. But visit any German hunting lodge or tavern, and you’ll see rows and rows of the little antlers, mounted shield style. The antlers are often difficult to measure by length and number of points, and many European trophy clubs use weight- or displacement-based scoring systems. But it’s not only about antlers. From the vineyards of France to the frozen forest-steppes of Kazakhstan, roe deer is the staple food for local hunters, and a delicacy at that. Last but not the least, roe deer provides an affordable opportunity to experience the ultimate European hunt, exploring much the same traditions, techniques and environments as for the bigger deer hunting, but without spending a small fortune.
