Stalking muntjac can be frustrating, rewarding and challenging in equal measure. These labrador-sized deer take every advantage of their diminutive stature, squeezing into the smallest, most improbable hiding places wherever dense vegetation creates the opportunity.
Today muntjac are widespread throughout the rural landscape (individuals have even taken up residence in larger urban parks) wherever dense woodland and thick understorey suit their secretive lifestyle. Often the opportunity for a shot is in a narrow window of exposure as a deer moves from one impenetrable area two another.
Outside Days offers both cull and trophy stalking for Muntjac in Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Norfolk

KIT & CLOTHING
Stalking muntjac is undertaken primarily from a high seat. Therefore clothing should be suitable for prolonged spells of sitting still, but be layerable to also be comfortable on the move. Full camouflage is useful but not essential, dull neutral tones are essential to help you blend into your environment.
Footwear dependant on time of year, but good strong boots or wellingtons, ideally one which you can feel the ground beneath your feet with.
A pair of binoculars is always useful when stalking.
Rifle and Ammunition
Minimum calibre in England is 0.220 with a muzzle velocity exceeding 1000 Foot pounds and a bullet weight of 50 grains or more.
Calibre restrictions in Scotland are that the bullet must weigh at least 100 grains, have muzzle velocity of 2450 fps or higher and a min muzzle energy of 1750 foot pounds.
