Hunting in Scotland
Pigeon shooting in Scotland normally takes place on farmland. Scottish farmers grow many crops that pigeons love to eat, including barley, peas and oilseed rape. This means that pigeons can be found on different crops at different times of year.
In Scotland we have the Greylag goose and the Pink footed goose as regular residents. They visit Scotland in the winter time, and then range throughout the Highlands with concentrations in the Central belt and up the east coast.
Scotland is one of the most challenging activities and it is best enjoyed by experienced hunters. Often found in pheasant woods, they feed nocturnally around streams, pasture fields and on boggy ground, but prefer dense cover during the day. The resident population in Britain is increased by a large over-wintering migrant population. It is thought by some that the bulk of this migration coincides with the first full moon in November.
Scotland has a vast deer population that is spread across the country throughout a variety of different terrain types. Because of this, the Highlands represent the perfect setting for anyone who is looking to pursue hunting and deer stalking in Scotland. At Mirani Hunting, we arrange deer hunting within a number of designated Scottish deer forests and woodlands throughout the year, with the host season being largely dependent upon the species of deer in question.
