I'm new to stalking but experienced in most other forms of shooting and field sports. I've recently gotten into stalking as I have been asked to begin working towards adding deer control to my list of work duties (I'm a ghillie and river manager)
I bought my first rifle earlier this year - nothing fancy, a clean second hand Ruger M77 Mk2 in .243 with a good scope and moderator and am hoping to do my DSC level 1 at some point within the next couple of years. For now I'm enjoying my first outings with the rifle and practising my field craft.
I'm fortunate in having lots of friends who are very experienced rifle shooters and stalkers but it still seemed like a very good idea to join the SD as a place to ask for advice when necessary.
Looking forward to getting involved.
