Hunting, shooting, fishing for Roe deer

Stalking, Bowhunting, Highseat

Like an expert angler, using polarized glasses and scanning beneath the water before making a cast, glassing for roe is the first part of shooting.

Roe deer are petite, undetectable, but like a young lover, completely ignorant to everything when they are in the rut.

Stalking for roe can take place in fields or forest and is best between the daylight hours of 10 and 5 or 6 pm. The dark morning hours make for difficult hunting of this small deer species.

They are fairly silent in their movements and activities compared to other species. Ideally on a roe hunt you have weather conditions welcoming roe deer movement and perfect visibility. Warmer, clear weather brings a better rut; the conditions help carry the stags' calls further and triggers a roe to be more energetic- and also more care-free and oblivious.

Siberian roe deer, a native to the western, European roe are slightly larger in stature and can be hunted in countries such as Russia and Mongolia. roe
