Thinking of going in the next couple of weeks for the Deer rutting season, anyone been and can give me an idea of what length of lens I am likely to need?

Thanks.

The longest lens in your bag. You do not want to get close to a Stag in must.

I don't know Bushy Park but at my local favorite for Deer (Studley Royal) you can get closer to the rutting than you want to - last year they were going for it in the middle of the car park and the picnic area on the banks of the lake - I was actually too close to use the lens I had on the camera - and too busy getting away!

I usually have the 150-500 and 70-200 for the closer shots.

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

I opened my front door one morning and there was one grazing in my garden and I live in the centre of Glasgow!

Thanks folks.

Thinking 17-70mm, 60-250mm and 300mm with th DA 1.4x then.

Or do I just take the 50-500mm OS

Take the selection. Consider Richmond Park too for rutting deer.

I thought this might be more Mike's sort of location link
