End of the season

 

The rut is rapidly coming to a close now. Whilst the occasional roar can still be heard, the strath is quiet now, stags and hinds are starting to separate and stags are starting to rest and, hopefully, recover before the winter sets in. We have already had some hard frosts over the past few days.

Our stalking has finished now, until the hinds start. This year we have shot 25 red stags, at an average weight of 17 stone, and 18 sika stags at an average of 8 stone 5lbs. It has been a good season with lots of activity, starting and finishing quite early. Our first roar was heard on 9 September and it was really all over by 15 October.
