Stalking

Too many deer can damage the moor to the detriment of all wildlife

Ten years ago it was common to see over 500 stags on one small area of the moor. They were over-grazing the heather and damaging areas of the moors to the detriment of the grouse and other wildlife.

Thoughtful management has reduced the size of the herd to a level at which they can all thrive.┬áThe size of stags has progressively increased and now ‘Royals’ – 12 pointers and even 14 pointers are regularly seen.

The moors and woodlands also support a fine head of roe deer.
