Hunting regulations in England would be considered draconian in America.  Bowhunting is illegal, except for hunting vermin.  You have to have a gun, and a good permit for it, as well as the right type of ammunition, and you can only hunt deer with a rifle.  Also, gun ownership is strictly regulated.  But stalking is allowed - it just means that you don't end up with meat at the end of all of it.  I have tracked and stalked foxes and deer for a few miles in the woods and forests, and I think it probably makes it easier to get close to animals if you aren't hunting them because you don't have expectations so high, and you won't be worrying about getting the right shot, that kind of thing, so you will be more relaxed, and relaxation is vital when it comes to stalking.

It is very nervewracking to stalk when your hunting: especially after you've waited for days to find the deer and you know that one mistake could send them bounding off before you get a shot.

But thats all the fun in it. That also why it is called hunting and not killing because you don't kill something every time you go out.

Yeah, but imagine what it would be like for a stone age hunter - everything hanging on the kill.
  I find that if an animal goes bounding off, it is best to wait a little while, maybe five minutes, for it to calm down and that kind of thing - deer tend not to go very far (foxes do, though) because they are stupid and forgetful, and because they are running faster than normal, they leave deeper tracks, and therefore easier to find.
  Tracking is the bigger brother of stalking - much more difficult, easily confused and sometimes more important.  Some tracks are easy to identify, like deer hooves, dog tracks, foxes (furry, smaller dog tracks), and some other animals like birds and squirrels.  If you can't find the deer (tracking), you can't get close to it (stalking), and can't get an accurate shot at it (killing).  So all these things are inter-connected, accuracy, stalking skills and tracking skills.  (Of course, if you live in a game rich environment, it may be possible to simply come across various animals).
