I must first off start by apologising, I should have posted more blogs by now...from here on in I'll try to be more regular!!
Well, a lot has happened in a few months. I have become a father for the first time, a gorgeous baby daughter, we have named her Flora - this has put paid to most of my shooting opportunities but still she is worth it (and it won't be forever)
I mainly thought I should post as I have finally completed my DSC1 results pending.
Persistence will pay off, just not today
Just thought I'd share some more of my newbie learning curve for anyone who fancies a read.
Yesterday I headed down to ELMER FUDD's patch near Monmouth. Barry (Elmer) has been really good to me, determined to get me a deer after my first and second stalks with him didn't produce. This was a special day also, as my dog Poppy was coming out with me for the first time stalking.
The omens weren't good to start with. Meeting
Well it's been a while since my last puppy diary. At long last I'm now in my new job which means pup training is no longer just for the early morning and late evening. So I've been over the past few weeks almost back to basics with her on some areas. Trying to improve her heel and calm her down a hit when we're out and about. That's done nicely, so today I set about laying a good track for her.
I admit we're a bit behind on this. One thing and another just meant we couldn't spend as much
I've just come back from visiting my parents who have moved back to the family's ancestral hometown in Yorkshire (I'm very jealous!) I managed to take the pup out to a lot of new environments and she even found her first pheasant. I also had fun in Dalby Forest boring the wife with stops every few minutes to look for slots where paths and rides intersect. I managed almost by accident to spot a couple of roe a long way off through my binoculars, but they didn't hang around in the open
