Hi all, first I'll start with what I do
I mainly hunt with terriers and lurchers, do a little bit of river fishing and get out with the ferrets when I can, I've just applied for my sgc and was considering applying for an fac at the same time but without landowners permission it maybe hard ( I have permission but the landowners aren't keen on having police snooping round).so my plan is to ask the fao when he interviews me for the shotgun if it's acceptable to apply for the fac with the view of going stalking? Go on a few accompanied stalks a year, learn from them and apply for an open cert after a few years, obviously I'd have to ask the person I'm stalking with for some kind of letter stating I'm not a complete numpty.
What do you guys think of my chances?
Also can anyone recommend any stalking places which teach the correct methods of field prep and disease with the carcass. I'm not really interested in the trophy bucks and stags more the experience and besides I'm more interested in deformation of antlers and such like than gold medal heads, also the price of them trophies is a bit out of my range.
Sorry for all the questions but I'm sure their will be plenty more, some of which will seem quite daft but I'm a complete novice on stalking and would appreciate any help and advice.
