Stalking Fallow is an extensive guide to the challenge of management and techniques of stalking fallow deer. It has been written not only with the novice and experienced stalker in mind, but also the deer manager and landowner. There is also much to learn if you simply stalk deer with a camera.

Thornley provides a unique insight into how to stalk woodland and open ground and the techniques in the use of using high seats. It also highlights the risks involved for the stalker as well as the deer. Managing the population, dealing with crop damage, arranging and participating in collaborative team culls are all covered for those faced with a wider management responsibility where large populations of fallow exist.

This definitive guide is essential reading for all associated with the management of fallow deer.
