When Nature Delivers!
THE ROAR in these parts, starts mid March and continues to the end of April. The Red Stags are at their most vocal, calling to attract the attention of mates and to also protect their territory. This involves the stags moving to their favoured rutting areas, which they defend (sometimes to the bitter end) and where they do their best to hold together their harem of hinds.
Stravon moves to a slightly different beat during this time of year - it is as if the place slips into a sixth gear. The atmosphere created is something to behold and the sound of their passionate challenges reverberating through the valleys is nothing short of amazing. The excitement of trading ‘roars’ with these magnificent animals as they close in on you is something that will remain with you for the rest of your days.
