Warnham Park, Bailing Hill Deer Farm, established since 1851

Trophy Shooting

Each year in September there may be a limited number of mature stags available to be trophy shot. Typically the beast is an old Park Stag whose antlers may be starting to 'go back' but still carry between 20 and 40 points on a wide and long rack; after years of competitive battle in the rut, he needs to be culled before running increasing risk of injury. Alternatively the beast may be farm-bred but surplus to live sales.

Applicants must be good marksmen.

In 2011 two excellent trophy stags were shot: Nimrod aged 11 with 39 point antlers; and Lincoln aged 10 with 34 point antlers (as pictured bellow):
