Deer Stalking

Childerley Sporting manage several thousand acres of stalking ground in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Suffolk. We can offer all 6 species of UK deer from cull hunts to trophy animals. We are rated number 1 for chinese water deer and muntjac experts.

A Typical Hunt

Starts with a range test to make sure the gun is accurate and the client is competent. The outing will consist of 2-3 hours morning and afternoon, with mostly stalking but also we use high seats to give you the best results. Shooting sticks are used for the close shots and a bi-pod for the longer distance field shots. After the outing is complete we return to the game larder.

Rifle Training

We offer rifle training to individuals or groups. We are able to offer tuition on getting the perfect grouping and to improve your shooting technique. We have a purpose built rifle range up to 250 metres.

Individual Hunts

We cater for all abilities, from beginners to the most experienced hunters. Prior to the outing we will visit the rifle range to test the zero and your capabilities. Outings tend to be two to three hours long with a professional hunting guide to give you an exceptional experience. Hunts consist from one outing to a 3 day hunt.

Group Hunts

Groups can consist up to 6 hunters who will all receive 1:1 guiding with one of Childerley Sporting professionals. Depending on your quarry the group will be divided with some stalking and some from high seats. Whether you're looking for a one-off trophy animal or a culling package, contact us to arrange your hunt.

Trophy Measuring

Childerley Sporting can measure your trophies as we are affiliated with BASC and sporting rifle, we are able to reward Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum trophies with a certificate and medal. You will also be entered into Sporting rifle magazine and the year book.

He has never failed to deliver the required sport that I have booked on behalf of my clients and guests.

Further to my day's stalking Chinese Water Deer with you earlier this year in March, can I just say what a pleasure it was and what a great trophy! From the onset, you and your guy's gave me a warm welcome and really made me feel part of the team.

I know we started the day off with a total blanket of fog, but the banter and crack whilst we waited, was really a part of a special day, too many times I've been to estates to shoot and if there's any waiting/problem involved, the atmosphere can be dower to say the least!

Once on the ground the stalking was fantastic, Beckerings Park really does lend its self to Childerley Sporting and Muntjac and there was certainly a good number of head of deer that we saw before you picked out a suitable buck... or was it just you being good at your job? I don't know, but what I do know is that I can't wait for November to come and shoot with you guy's again!

... you and your guys gave me a warm welcome and really made me feel part of the team.

I have stalked with Paul Childerley at Childerley Sporting on a number of occasions now and have had the opportunity to stalk and shoot Chinese Water Deer on his estate in Bedfordshire. As a species which I was not initially familiar with, Paul and his wealth of knowledge on Childerley Sporting provided me with a great insight in to the behaviour and management of this interesting species. I have had great success stalking with Paul for both cull and trophy animals and I would recommend his services to anyone wishing to stalk Childerley Sporting. Paul is a true professional and runs a fantastic set up with full facilities on the estate for both game shooting and deer stalking.

I am looking forward to returning again very soon.

I have done a variety of sporting days with Childerley Sporting over the last few years including driven partridge and pheasant, walked up days, driven duck shooting and duck flighting, pigeon shooting and deer stalking. The days are always really well organised and Paul, Scott and the team are very friendly and helpful. The variety is second to none and offers sport for all budgets and all within easy access of London.

I am a very satisfied and loyal client of Childerley Sporting and as such would highly recommend them. From a novice to the experienced hunter, Paul and his team will always make you feel welcome and guarantee a top class Game Shooting or Deer Stalking experience.

In March I joined Paul for an unforgettable afternoon stalking. As a novice I was made to feel at ease and was offered first class tuition; starting out on the range, learning the basics in firearm safety and practising on the target before heading out to the fields and ending the evening on a very high note with a CWD.

Paul and his team will always make you feel welcome and guarantee a top class Game Shooting or Deer Stalking experience..

Joanne Grant
Newcomer into the field

Having hunted several European countries, but never England, I very much looked forward to visiting Childerley Sporting and their hunting grounds. And my expectations were certainly not let down.

Firstly, the professionalism of Paul and his team is evident from the first introduction, through the intense stalks to the handling of trophies. Secondly, the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed, which I guess, is due to the aforementioned professionalism and confidence in their own work. Finally, the deer management is top notch, and the number and coverage of medal class trophies quite impressive. Should you contemplate hunting for Childerley Sporting or muntjac I highly recommend Childerley Sporting. I've already booked next years trip.
