All trophies are accessed on the hunt when stag/bull is spotted with client. An estimated score using the sci scoring system is agreed between guide and hunter before the animal is taken.
Note: we have given estimated dates that we believe give the hunter the best chance of securing the trophy of a life time. Late velvet can be an excellent time to secure a trophy as bulls/stags are out in the open grassland trying to put condition on for the upcoming rut. The rut is the pinnacle of the hunting season, the thrill of pulling a bugling bull out of the timber or sneaking in on a bellowing red stag is priceless.
