Deerstalking

This is a postcard showing the work of the Scottish artist R R MacIan. It is one of a series of illustrations in which he portrays aspects of rural life in the Highlands. The illustrations were published in the book 'Gaelic gatherings, or the Highlanders at Home on heather, river and loch', published 1847-49, with accompanying text by James Logan

Deerstalking is a form of hunting in which the marksman pursues the animal stealthily on foot. It is still carried out in the Highlands, not only as a sport but as a means of removing old or diseased animals from the herd and reducing the numbers of deer. Deer herds are culled in order to prevent them from damaging the environment and from depleting their own food supply by overgrazing
