At first light, Ian stalks down to a highseat and watches over the valleys below. This allows the surrounding animals time to come out of cover and begin their morning feed, providing the perfect opportunity to not only formulate a plan for the day but also admire the incredible scenery.

Following the sunrise, it’s time to head out on foot into the woodland and begin stalking before the bucks come out to feed. This is where the hard work begins and to be successful here you really have to put in the miles. Covering this amount of ground should put Ian in the perfect location to take a shot.

The topography on the Downs in Hampshire is ideal for roebuck. Due to the environment, Ian has chosen the versatile Deerhunter Upland hunting collection with Hitena reinforcement. Lightweight and breathable, this outfit can more than cope with the dense overgrowth and wet fields.

Unfortunately, for Ian, this time doesn’t result in a successful roebuck stalk. That hasn’t stopped this being one of Ian’s favourite stalking outings.

There have been plenty of animal activity, including a roe kid hidden in one of the fields. Observing new life and the next generation up close in a true privilege.
