Boar Shooting with Outlands – Your Weekend Taken Care Of

Here at Outlands Shooting, we are privileged to work with some of the finest estates across the UK, Europe and North America offering deer hunting, boar shooting and game bird shooting.

One of the locations that we take our clients back to again and again is France, to the unspoilt and truly beautiful countryside in the Grand Est region in northeastern France.

Our estates are managed through the year to provide only the best driven wild boar, red deer and roe deer stalking and hunting available. Our team will organise European hunting permits, accommodation, food and hunting so your bespoke trip is fully tailored to meet your exact requirements.

What to Expect From Your Hunting Trip?

A typical 3 day hunting trip can be taken mid week or at the weekend. The days are fully managed leaving you to enjoy the experience without the hassle.

A typical three day hunting experience is as follows:

– Three days hunting at two of our tried and tested estates
– 3 nights accommodation in your choice of hotel, B&B etc
– Single occupancy accommodation
– Breakfast
– Hunt day lunch 
– Permits and licences 
– Transport between the hotel and estate

We can arrange evening meals if you require however, we do not include these as standard so that you are free to enjoy and experience the local area and it’s eateries each evening.

Our trips are perfectly suited for groups of around 5 people and cost between £1300 and £1500 per person as a guide. Hunting licences will need to be purchased. We take care of this process and ask for 60E each to cover the cost of the licence. 

During the process, we keep you and your group updated, fully informed and can assure you that everything is taken care of. We believe this is why our clients return to us again and again.

Deer Stalking with Outlands Shooting

Deer Stalking with Outlands

Here at Outlands Shooting, we cater for couples and groups of hunters that want to experience deer stalking in its most rewarding form. We provide a great day out for you and your colleagues.

We have 3 beautiful estates that we stalk over and each are managed to an extremely high standard. Our clients return to us again and again as we pride ourselves on offering the best hunting in the UK.

A Typical Day

The deer stalking day generally runs with a set format. We split the day into two and this could be either a morning and an afternoon stalk, or an evening, a stay in a Bed and Breakfast followed by an early morning stalk the following day.

If you are in a high seat, this will begin before light and I will come back to you after approximately 2-3 hours. If you stalk round any of the estates, you will stalk with me. After the first session, you will swap places to experience the opposite.

Single Packages

These are for one person and they include a morning and an evening stalk. There is no limit on numbers of animals shot.

These do sell out very quickly so if this is of interest, you will need to book quickly to avoid disappointment. We only get a set amount of slots and they do fill up quickly as they are very popular.

Group Packages

For deer stalking we can accommodate groups of up up to 4 people and the day is a combination of high seats and stalking. Again, there is no limit on numbers of animals shot so these do sell out very quickly, due to the high standard of stalking.

During the day, breakfast is cooked for you out in the woods as the day starts just before light. During the stalk, we move a few deer towards you in a rough bushy area of the estate and stalk until lunch. Again, this is cooked for you out in the woods.

After lunch, we stalk or high seat again until dark.

Good outdoor clothing and footwear is needed, along with your stalking equipment. We take care of everything else and send a detailed itinerary before your day. Our days are fully managed and you and your group are always accompanied by myself, Phil Johnson as your host. I am there to make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible and that you are receiving the best stalking possible.

For more information, please get in touch on experience@outlandsshooting.com and we’ll be happy to help.

Hunting Regulations UK – UK Deer Legislations

UK Deer Legislation – Hunting Regulations

We often get asked for information on deer stalking in the UK and we all know that stalking in the UK offers some excellent opportunities for both national and international hunters. Here is some basic information on the law.

It’s important to remember that deer legislation across the UK is not consistent across all countries and rules in Scotland and Northern Ireland are different from that in England and Wales. In our experience and as an example, hunters may decide to stalk one species of deer in Scotland and another in England. This means different laws for each.

Here are just a few reminders:

The Deer Acts allows occupiers to protect their crops from excessive damage and permits the killing of an animal to prevent suffering. Please remember that the stalker must not:

1. Only use legal firearms
2. Shoot out of season unless authorised
3. Shoot at night. Shooting is not allowed one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise except under licence
4. Shoot from a moving vehicle
5. Use a vehicle to drive deer
6. Sell venison in Scotland, except to a licensed venison dealer

Please Note:
A Game Licence is no longer needed to kill or take deer anywhere in the UK.

Firearms & Ammunition
The stalker is only allowed to use a rifle and ammunition which is legal for the species of deer and the stalker should be guided by knowledge, experience and personal preference in their choice of a rifle and calibre. The legal requirements are laid down in the Deer Acts.


For Muntjac and Chinese Water Deer:
A rifle with a minimum calibre of .220 inches and muzzle energy of no less than 1000 foot pounds. A bullet weight of no less than 50 grains may be used.

All deer of any species:
A minimum calibre of .240 and minimum muzzle energy of 1,700 foot pounds is the legal requirement.


For Muntjac and Chinese Water deer:
A rifle with a minimum calibre of .220 inches and muzzle energy of no less than 1000 foot pounds. A bullet weight of no less than 50 grains may be used.

All deer of any species:
A minimum calibre of .236 inches, a minimum bullet weight of 100 grains and minimum muzzle energy of 1,700 foot pounds is the legal requirement.


Roe Deer:
The bullet must weigh at least 50 grains and have a minimum muzzle velocity of 2,450 feet per second. A minimum muzzle energy of 1,000 foot pounds may be used.

All deer of any species:
The bullet must weigh at least 100 grains and have a minimum muzzle velocity of 2,450 feet per second and a minimum muzzle energy of 1,750 foot pounds.

PLEASE NOTE that all these figures are the minimum legal requirement.

For all deer stalking the bullet must be of a type designed to expand/deform on impact. For example soft nose or ballistic tip.
