BASC’s head measuring service has run in partnership with Sporting Rifle since late 2011, and has established itself as the nation’s premier deer record-keeping organisation. Now, for the first time, every head measured by the alliance has been captured in a single work. Records of British Game organises every head from the UK’s six resident deer species, plus wild boar and feral goat. Listing them by species then county provides a fresh approach, casting light on which areas really are the most successful for each species.
As well as thousands of listings, you’ll find full-colour photos of hundreds of heads inside. Introductions to each species provide context on their role within the UK ecosystem and how responsible stalking plays a crucial part in their conservation.
What results is a fascinating historical record of how the nation’s deer herd has fared and evolved – and a stunning testament to the idea that stalkers make the best conservationists.
