I'm 21 and from the south east of England and have been hunting deer for around a year and a half but have hunted small game for quite a while before that. First and foremost my passion for hunting deer has come from my love for wild food and gaining my own meat. However, I do enjoy it a great deal as well! I currently shoot a 243 Remington 700 with a Leupold scope and a reflex T8. Weekends that I'm not out stalking are often spent target shooting on the ground I have permission for. I also reload for my 243.
Working in forestry has also given me the deeper understanding of how deer effect woodlands and their flora. I currently have my DSC1 and I hope to gain my DSC2 this winter.
