First Steps on sponsored DSC1

You might have seen on other threads that I have been lucky enough to be selected for sponsorship for DSC1 with Pierred in July. To say I was chuffed was an understatement. I've been at this stalking game for about a year, having come from a completely non hunting background. I got into the sport through my love of food and cooking and have had several guided roe stalks now across the north of England and the borders. However I am yet to release a shot due to either not seeing the right sex of deer, or most recently not being able to accurately sexy deer in the dying light.
Anyway, the reality has struck! I got my training materials and also bought the CDs from Galloway field sports (which are superb for the drive to work, although I find myself answering all the questions with a Scottish accent). However I came back to earth with a bump last week after a day at the range practicing off sticks. I have plenty of work to do on this area as I had the confidence of all shots being inside a 10p piece of the bench rest, but off the sticks I'm lucky if they fit on a dinner plate.
Anyway, watch this space and I'll update as best I can about the process and hopefully a few others can learn a thing or two in preparation for their DSC.
