Stalking Red Deer Hunting

  • Recommended duration: 5 days Hunting (6 nights)
  • Hunting season from September 15  until the end of October

The Hunt for Red Deer during rut is an excellent hunt and we offer a 100% guarantee of a successful hunt for trophy deer.

The hunt takes place exclusively in the islands of Saaremaa and Hiiumaa where the largest populations and highest quality of Red Deer are found in Estonia.

Red Deer were introduced to Estonia by the Germans after the First World War and were located on the Islands to prevent their extension to the rest of the country and avoid the possible impact that introduced species may have on other species, such as the European Moose
Estonian Red Deer are considered the largest deer in the wild in Europe and the hunt each year produces not less than 3 gold medal trophies.

Development of hunting

Stalking red Deer hunting begins at dawn. The hunter, accompanied by a local guide, will walk through the hunting grounds paying attention for the braying of the deer and searching for the best specimens.

Once you find the specimen that you desire you will proceed to make your approach keeping in mind the wind factor and shooting angle.

The same process is repeated two hours before sunset.

The hunt usually lasts between 4 and 5 hours and requires the hunter to walk several kilometers a day.

Peculiarities of Stalking Red Deer Hunting

During the rut the Red Deer show much less caution and the hunt will not be difficult but you may need to walk long distances.

The shot is usually performed at an average distance of 100 meters and is recommended to bring a high caliber with flat trajectory.
