Looking for stag’s antlers

As soon as you arrive, Donation will warmly welcome you to this lovely estate with the magnificent feudal Chateau du Fou as a backdrop. After a passionate lecture on stags lifestyle, you will be ready to start the search for stags and stags antlers in a private property.

You will walk through fields, amble along forest paths and even trudge through branches to get as close as possible to stags and, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to take back this magic souvenir the King of the forest leaves behind every year around springtime : his moultings.

You will learn to approach your target object stealthily and to make slow progress going against the wind, which is by far the surest way to reach your objective of a stag spotting. Your only means of transportation will be your own two legs. You will be looking for clues and tracks left by deers during the night. You will specifically look for antlers in ditches, fields, healths or even at the top of pine trees. Fortunately, Donatien is a regular in the forest and will point you in the right direction to spot clues.

After a hike adapted to all participants, you will leave with tons of memorable experiences and sensations and still be in awe of this extraordinary mystery that the stag remains.

It will be time for you to get back to your treetop cabin...
