The Stag Hunt

A Fun, Personalised Treasure Hunt written just for Stag Parties.

It’s a fantastic way to get everyone up and out before they inevitably head off to sample the local pubs and restaurants.

Our Personalised Stag Hunts are a perfect way for Stag Parties to get to know each other before the big night and to have some fun along the way. Your group will be split into teams and sent out to explore the town or city of your choice, solve location clues and mix with the locals as they take on the photo challenges.

The Stag Hunt is available in every town and city in Ireland and now also in most towns and cities across the UK.

So how does it work?

You send us some photographs and information about the Stag and we put together a personalised Stag Hunt pack incorporating the photographs and information. We then send you everything you need to run the event yourself.

  • Instructions for the event organiser.
  • ‘Rules’ for the teams, which must be obeyed!
  • Score Sheet (for the Stag Hunt and not to be confused with any other type of scoring!)
  • Answer Booklet (in a sealed envelope, so the organiser can also participate).
  • Stag Hunt Booklets and pens for each team.
  • Backpack.
  • A token prize ‘Treasure’ or winners medals.

What do we need?What kind of information and photographs do you need?

Basically anything you think you might get away with! We don’t want to limit you on the information and photographs that you supply, but by the same token we don’t want you to be under too much pressure either. A little will go a long way.

For the information you could think along these lines:
  • His celebrity crush
  • Worst / favourite job
  • Favourite TV program / film
  • Favourite music / band
  • Proudest moment
  • Embarrassing moment
  • Bad / annoying habit
  • Hobby / pastime
  • Favourite sport / team

We have found that blokes tend not to hold back when sharing stories (flattering or otherwise) about the groom to be. I can’t imagine why?! But if you’re his brother or one of his best friends and are keen to stay that way, you’ll know what you can get away with!

For the photographs you could think along these lines:
  • Childhood / baby photographs
  • Teenage years (you know when they looked really cool?!)
  • Holiday snaps (sunburnt and/or hungover perhaps)
  • Bad hair day
  • Action photo (on a bike, skydiving, skiing or doing body shots, we’re not here to judge)
  • A selfie that he thought was worth posting

In the interest of fairness however, we also like to have you include a flattering photo too (if you can find one).

Please use good quality pics that are in focus and not a photograph of a photograph. Ideally email about 10 or 12 of them to us. We may only use 4 or 5 however, depending on what’s suitable or appropriate.

What is in the Stag Hunt?

There are five sections to our unique personalised Stag Hunts.

  1. Location Clues
  2. Trivia (incorporates info supplied on the Stag)
  3. Photo Challenge
  4. Scavenger hunt
  5. Puzzles & Riddles

How long does it take?

The Stag Hunts are designed to run for about 2 hours in total. Allow about an hour and a half for the Stag Hunt itself and then another half hour for marking the teams and announcing the winning team (to cries of ‘FIX’). For the event organiser, remember, your decision is final. A nice, quiet bunch of respectable young men may well turn into a bunch of charged up, competitive animals with a need to win!

So what do we need on the day?

We send you everything you need to run the event yourself. The instructions are straightforward and the marking system is kept as simple as possible. You just need to decide on a starting location and final destination. This is usually a pub, restaurant or hotel. Beyond that, ensure each team has a digital camera or smartphone (for the Photo Challenges) and a sense of humour!

How much does it cost?

The standard cost for a group of up to 25 people is €250 all inclusive.

The cost rises slightly for larger groups simply because more team booklets are required.

Payment is made via PayPal. It’s safe, secure and you’re 100% protected with PayPal. We will invoice you via PayPal only after the pack has been sent to you by registered post.  You can pay by return with a debit or credit card.  You don’t even need a PayPal account.
