    Guided Hunting Trips

    Rating: ****

    In hunting there is only one ethic and that is to have a great day in the forest and if you get an animal then this is a bonus. We invite you to hunt in incredible scenery with some of the highest populations of feral deer in the country. All of this hunting is in a Forest Park and NO animals are held in fenced areas. During the Roar (April) is the best time to secure a stag with antlers but there are opportunities for animals all year round.

    We have a hut that we stay at in the Forest Park and would suggest 2-3 days hunting time as the animals do move around. We supply everything but we need to know what food you like as we carry everything in to the hut. We recommend that you do some exercise like walking for at least 1 month before arriving.

    "I was able to see 2 wild deer, you might need very good luck to see it in Japan. I would like to say thanks to Damian, otherwise I wouldn't have seen the deer."
    Takashi Baba - Saitama, Japan
