Hello you lovely lot!
A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this forum so thought I’d see what it’s all about and keen to learn as much as possible!
A bit about me: I grew up in Cornwall on a Dairy Farm until we had to sell up. Field sports is something i’ve always done but had a bit of a break from after moving to London to pursue a career in Film (This will be the first and last time I’ll mention work, due to it’s nature it doesn't always mix with field sports as i’m sure you can appreciate-so there may be topics or questions i’ll remain silent on).
I’m now a little older, wiser and able to spend a little more time getting back to the sports I love.
Although I’ve been shooting as long as I can remember, Stalking is something that I’ve only recently got into. Being new to the sport I’ve only been on a handful of stalks, 3 were no shows or only animals out of season and the last one was a success and a very memorable first Fallow Doe. Coming from a farming background I would say I lean more to the management/ one for the pot side of the spectrum as a pose to pure trophy stalking but of course see it’s merits.
Ok, so now you have my life story I’ll leave you with a parting statement which I’m sure will get a few response- I’m currently in the process of applying for my FAC, once this comes through I’m looking at a hopefully getting a Sauer 404 (i’ve used a Sauer 202 for all my stalks so far) in .243- thoughts on a postcard please….
