Just returned from an english countryside hunt for the British 6 and wanted to try to achieve it in un-believable 6 days.
All wild free range wild deer of England . Stag , Axis , Fallow , Roe , Muntjac and Chinese Water Deer.
Hunted with Andy and Liam Payne out of Bristol England and their company West Country Deer Services.
If you enjoy Deer hunting in the rural farmlands of the US , the small towns hunting farms and woodlots you'll just fall in love with the English Countryside.
I averaged a deer species a day. Took 8 Total-- 1 red stag, 1 roe deer the last day of it's season and finding any roe deer that hadn't cast off their antlers was VERY difficult , 2 Chinese water deer the first day of their season. 2 fallow , 1 axis 1 muntjac.
Very pleased with the hunting and the guides and company. I will return. They have extensive lands under lease and many agreements to access thousand and thousands of acres with of high numbers of deer, of all species. The roe deer numbers are very high in the area. Concentrations are exceptional. The Chinese Water deer , they have the best grounds in the country and the muntjac infest their hunting leases. The fallow reds and axis are in their areas as well and the success if incredible. I'm not much on long reports Pictures speak a thousands words. As for Reaching a goal and accomplishment of very few, I did get my British 6 in 6 days !!! Not great cell phone pics but still .....Enjoy !

I have been waiting for you to post these. You had about as good a six day hunt that you could have.
I have never heard of a couple of these deer but you got some great ones.
How are they coming back to the states?
Enjoyed the hunt do you have a straight on photo of the red stag to show both sides in one photo.

Great trophies Dennis!

I really want the Chinese water deer one way.

By the way, have you given any thought as to whether to have your taxidermy done here in the States or overseas? It's an important decision you know.... :A Outta:

Sorry but I think Dennis would mount his own trophies?

Very impressive. I didn’t realize Britain had such animals for a start.

Very nice! I had no idea that the trophy quality and the ability to hunt them in GB was at that level. Did you bring your rifle or use one of the locals?

Some very impressive animals shot, you did well to shoot them all in 6 days too. Most people take a life time to collect them all!!!

One correction though they are not Axis they are Japanese Sika which are I different sub species. The Axis is bigger that Sika, they still have the same antler style and configuration and the big eyebrow too. But we do not have free roaming Axis in GB. Still none the less you completed the British 6 and some great trophies and representatives taken too, congratulations sir.

Very cool trophies. Ever since I went to England as a teenager I've wanted to go back and hunt.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
