The stag season starts on the 1st of July with stalking on Dalmunzie typically starting in early September and running until the end of the season on the 20th of October. Mid-October is the most exciting time to stalk as the stags are in the midst of the rut, when their roars can be heard throughout the day and night, tending to peak three hours after dawn and three hours before dusk. During this time of year, the stag experiences many physiological changes, including a doubling in thickness of the neck and even a change in the shape of the tongue.
The hind season starts on the 21st of October and runs until the 15th of February, with the majority of hinds shot early in the season.
Our range of holiday cottages and hotel rooms provide excellent on site accommodation for stalking parties.
