Deer Management

Deer Management Services
The St. Hubert Club offers deer and wild boar management services to landowners, estate managers and farmers throughout the UK. The Club has 59 years of experience of deer management and was the first organisation in the UK to introduce European methods of deer control using rifles at a time when deer were widely regarded as vermin in the UK and were often controlled inhumanely using shotguns.

Deer management plans and advice
The Club provides advice and practical help in all aspects of deer and wild boar management including damage assessment, population surveys, damage prevention, the production of deer and wild boar management plans, grant aid advice and help with population control throughout Great Britain. This can be on short or long term contracts.

The St. Hubert Club is happy to offer free initial visits and assessment of deer management needs to landowners. And, in addition, may be interested in leasing deer stalking anywhere in the UK.

Experience and qualified stalkers
Currently the Club manages over 10,000 acres of Forestry Commission woodland. You can be assured that any St Hubert Club deer stalker is an experienced and qualified individual. With wide experience of deer stalking in areas of high public pressure St. Hubert Club stalkers are able to carry out a professional and discrete service. The Club has a proven record of being able to achieve cull targets and one of its main advantages is being able to put appropriate numbers of safe, qualified stalkers into an area if required to achieve required cull levels.

The Club’s qualified stalkers have all completed the deer stalker training qualification. In 1973 the Club introduced very first formal deer stalker training programme in the UK and has been at the forefront of deer stalker training ever since.

The Club’s current deer stalking award was the first customised deer stalking training to be approved by Lantra Awards, it is the most comprehensive deer stalking training available in the UK. Members will typically take at least 4 years to achieve the award through a variety of accompanied stalks, lectures, shooting and written tests.
