THE WILD RED DEER OF SCOTLAND
Notes from an Island Forest on Deer, Deer Stalking, and Deer Forests in the Scottish Highlands.
By Allan Gordon Cameron.
Originally published in the early 1920's this scarce deer stalking title is now very hard to locate in its first edition.
READ COUNTRY BOOKS have now republished it using the original text, maps and illustrations.
The author was an experienced stalker and naturalist who wrote many articles for the sporting journals of that era. The life of a Scottish hill stag is a phenomenon without parallel in the natural history of the species and this book will prove of great interest to all with an interest in field sports and nature.
Two hundred and sixty five pages contain fifteen detailed chapters including : Deer Stalking Old and New. -- The Hill Stag and the Hill Stalk. -- A Naturalist in the Deer Forest. -- Calving, Birth Rate etc. -- Habits. -- Duration of Life. -- Stalking Methods. -- Antlers (four chapters) -- Deer Forest Reforms. -- The Ideal Forest. -- Deer Distribution etc.
This is a fascinating read for any stalking enthusiast or historian of the species, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today.

R.H. Review Nov 10, 2006
Excellent book, written in the 1920's. Main focus is biology, but 20 to 30% relates to hunting, which is my primary interest. Having only hunted red deer on three estates, the author's observations seem very accurate, based on my limited experience. It would seem to be time for someone to write an updated version, adding the knowledge gained more recently.
