It’s loud and aggressive, and the stakes are high at this time of the year for testosterone-filled red and fallow deer as they vie for breeding rights. Fortunes shift and stags nearing total exhaustion can lose everything.
Spend 3 days photographing and watching rutting red and fallow deer on the incredible Knepp Wildlands.
The Knepp Wildland at 3,500 acres, is the largest privately owned re-wilding project in lowland Europe and the wildlife is nothing short of incredible. It has the added advantage of being slap bang in the middle of south-east England. We shall have exclusive access to this area.
This 3-day residential course offers:
- Access to dawn and dusk hides at traditional lek sites
- Off-road deer safaris
- Full instruction and tuition both in the classroom and in the field.
Full photographic tuition is given throughout, as well as fieldcraft, and deer natural history.
An interesting point is that that the fallow deer on the Knepp Wildland project have prize-winning antlers, considered some of the largest in the world?
Accommodation is full-board on the ‘glamping’ site at Knepp Wildland in either shepherd’s huts or elaborate bell-tents. Please do not be put off by this aspect, this accommodation is heated and very well appointed, matching accommodation on the top African safari camps.
