Trophy Quality:
The trophy quality of red deer in Scotland is excellent to good. Red Stags in Scotland do not get as large as in Argentina or mainland Germany and Hungary as there are fewer minerals and the weather is harsh.

Guides (Stalker), and helpers (Ghillie) use high-end spotting scopes and binoculars. They are very professional game managers with friendly a demeanor. They wear matching estate tartan tweed suits and ties, as gentlemen. They are very happy to help as long as you don’t pressure them for the biggest trophy. A good tip is up to 50 pounds and a good bottle of whiskey if you shoot a very nice stag.

    Red stag hunting in Scotland, especially in the rut of late September to early October while the stags roar across the highlands is truly magical.
    You can even hunt other deer like Sika or Roe.
    Because the meeting times for the day are after 8AM and usually can be back before dinner each day, it’s a great hunt to bring a friend or loved one; even non hunters have a great time sightseeing and shopping nearby.
