    Hunting red stag in Scotland

    A nicely put together film by two brothers hunting in Scotland. They have actually done 6 short films check out the others, all worth a watch

    Yep how they do it in Scotland. Often the guide or "stalker" will take the rifle for the shooter load it and set it up. Still very traditional up there.

    It is a dangerous time of year to hunt up there , as the Haggis gets quite aggressive during the breeding season.

    Nice vid

    Yes it's a hard thing to get your head around if your used to our NZ way of doing it.

    Wow, that brings back memories. I did a couple years game keeping and working as a Gillie over in Scotland.

    It's a dramatic landscape, none of the hills are actually that big. Most hills are well under 700m ASL. from memory the highest peak in the UK Ben Nevis is only about 1300m and the locals treat it like its Mt Everest!

    Hunting was a dream, loaded with deer, ready access and most times you can drive an atv to collect your kill.

    But I've heard they can be calmed by reading Burns to them.

    Re Ben Nevis etc. Plenty of overeas visitors, including a few Kiwis, have to get rescued from those hills every year, mostly due to treating them with contempt.

    For sure, all countries are good at breeding stupid people. Nz is certainly not exempt, just have a look in any Pack N Save on benefit day.
