Euston Estate : Deer Management


Deer have resided on the estate for hundreds of years, primarily in parks which are thought to date from the medieval period up to the early 1800's. The Estate's red, roe and non-native muntjac (and occasional fallow deer) are now truly wild and free ranging.

Our Estate Deer Stalker manages the deer population to maintain a herd in balance with the Estate's environmental and agricultural requirements.

The Euston Estate takes a great interest in trying to improve deer management  in the region. We are the leading party in organising a red deer calf-tagging project with the Breckland Deer Group. This annual activity has helped our understanding of the potential movements and ranges of the UK's largest wild land mammal. We are also involved with several university studies looking at deer, genetics, carcass weights and their overall numbers.

As part of the required culling practices, the Estate offers deer stalking to paying clients. This is carried out under the supervision of the Head Deer Stalker.

Since 2005 the estate has gained a renowned international reputation for deer stalking of the highest quality.
