This is a very long shot, and huge ask of anyone who would even consider it.
I am hoping to take my twin nephews out on their first real hunting trip at the end of the month. My plan is to take them to my syndicate ground where they can stalk with me and learn about deer, woodland, wildlife and hopefully see a deer shot and all that comes after that. All while enjoying the great adventure of being away from home and camping out, cooking their own grub and having a good time.
However I am concerned that the midge situation up in Scotland may spoil what will be their first taste of stalking, and maybe to the point where they don't want to do it again, which would be a great shame.
So I'm looking for a back up plan, which is where I hope someone on here could help?
My request is if there is anyone out there that would let me bring these two lads (8 years old and are sensible lads) onto their ground and stalk with me? Or even take one of the lads out while I took the other and vice versa.
Of course I would expect to pay for the stalking and would be looking to shoot a munty or roe buck. Nothing special just a cull animal that could give them the experience. If we could camp up somewhere that would be great but if not we'd find somewhere local to stay.
I have them at the end of the month for 4 days so would love to have a couple days out stalking, I'll take them canoeing or camping etc to fill the other days.
I am an experienced stalker, with all the bits of paper. I consider myself a genuine outdoors man who appreciates the countryside and all the responsibility one has to keeping it as it should be. I realise what a privilege it would be should someone be good enough to accommodate us and can assure of the greatest care and respect would be given to their ground.
If you think you could do something and would like to talk direct to me please pm and I'll give you a call.
I have a great bond with these lads and as their farther is fairly absent in their life I would like to see them take up some of the things I love in life. I hope in time it will help shape them and their way of life. Maybe they'll carry me out stalking when I'm an old man, or push me zimmer frame for me!
I look forward to someone coming up with some idea's and will cross my fingers.
