The hunting season with dogs has finished for the year. January was the final month. Now we devote ourselves to stalking deer instead.

Sneak hunting fallow deer is not very difficult in many cases. The deer are quite calm at the feeding sites. Although, sometimes it can prove to be almost impossible to get a shot chance or even see a deer.

During the winter months the food for the deer is very scarce. Most serious hunters plant or spread food on their land for the deer to survive when their usual dietary items are covered in snow. I have some assets in certain lands to hunt on these dining areas. Here we participate in proper wildlife management and shoot the correct number of wildlife within the legal limits.

We also stalk on crops during this time of year. We sneak along field edges where many deer feed. You can see the big deer standing and eating. It is such a wonderful site to see. Most hunters will know that this is a very challenging way to hunt. We enter the fields anywhere from 500 meters to 200 meters out in order to shoot on open ground. We must sneak as close as possible

It is sometimes easy and sometimes it’s hard. That is what makes me love hunting Fallow Deer. Now we wait for next season!

I was born and raised in northeast Pennsylvania, and currently live in the hill country of Texas. I consider myself a western hunter at heart, enjoying glassing vast landscapes and the thrill of the stalk. My motivations as an outdoorsman are rooted in the sustenance and physical aspects. In fact, my largest driving factor for physical fitness is preparing for upcoming hunts and ensuring I’m well prepared to climb mountains and cover ground with a heavy pack.
