Deer stalking was a favourite pastime of Prince Albert, especially while staying at Balmoral. On 7 September 1852 Queen Victoria accompanied her husband on a stalking expedition on Canop Hill. Queen Victoria would often sketch her husband's prizes once they had been brought back to Balmoral.

This drawing is one of a series of drawings from an album (RCIN 2116979) of photographs and drawings of stags shot by Prince Albert.
