mrscottishfarmer (aged 33) here from the Scottish Borders (kelso area).
Been brought up and lived on an arable/fat cattle farm all my life.
was first introduced to shooting when we had a problem with pigeons messing in the cattle shed.
My dad bought me a second hand .22 bsa air rifle when I was 16 to sort the problem out.
I then went on to get a second hand .22 Mauser rim fire. Mostly used to shoot rabbits and the odd hare. About 2 years ago hare's started to become a problem on the farm so last year I bought a second hand tikka t3 .223. And since then have became hooked on stalking.
Tomorrow I am going to book a pre dsc1 and dsc1 course which I am looking forward to. I have not yet shoot a roe deer but have had plenty of opportunities on the farm. I am sure the course will serve me well and looking forward to learning more about deer stalking on here.
