i live in Lancashire and have been a game shooter mostly rough and a bit of driven for about 15 years but have just started to get in to some deer stalking. I have been out 3 times now escorted and with estate rifle and have really enjoyed my trips. I have applied for my FAC (apparently Lancashire are taking 6-8 months to process) and have asked for a 6.5x55 as this is what I've been using and like and a .308 as well. I have undertaken and passed a DSC1 and once up and running will probably be looking for other days and a syndicate. I have signed up for the forum as there seems to be a lot of helpful and good advice on stalking, rifles and kit.
