Stag stalking on the hill is one of the most breathtaking and unforgettable experiences a UK deer stalker can have - and issue 174 is here to help you make the most of that trip to the Highlands, with all the tips, tricks, kit and stalking stories you could ever need.

David Barrington Barnes shares his cherished stag stalking memories from years past, while Chris Dalton sets out on his own after a problem stag. Stuart Wilson reviews a .30-06 Winchester rifle that's perfect for reds and super value too. And editor-in-chief Pete Carr takes on the greatest challenge the Highlands have to offer: the Macnab.

Elsewhere, we've got bumper foxing features from Robert Bucknell, Mike Powell and Mark Ripley, showing you how to make the most of 'prime lamping season' as the nights lengthen. Chris Parkin has got in on the foxing act too, testing an ATN Mars thermal imager that's sure to find favour among foxers.

We've also got another crop of medal heads thanks to the BASC and BDS service, Will O'Meara's experiences shooting PRS competition, axis deer in Argentina, deer dog training and testing, how to build a high seat cheaply and easily, and a lot more besides.
