Hunting & Fishing

Our lands are close to the original release location of the Sika Deer that were introduced back 1905, and are well regarded as an ideal hunting destination.

Today, keeping deer numbers to a sustainable level is important to the environment. 

The Trust gives access to hunters on the blocks for two seasons of the year as well as occasional culling periods.  The two periods are from 10th March - 30th May and 1st October - 20th December.

There are a number of huts available to hunters flown into A blocks.

All bookings are managed through Helisika. They provide fast and convenient helicopter access to otherwise remote terrain.

Happy hunting!
