    Hi folks, this is my intro as a new member

    We moved north 7 years ago to Aviemore area as a "quality of life" decision, and to pursue my passion for deer. I had for many years taken individual weeks in the Highlands for stags, and stalked a few roe in Yorkshire. But the time came for a much more involved life style!

    For 4 years I was Fishery Manager on Rothiemurchus Estate, but am now employed as Wild Deer Best Pracice Officer by Scottish Natural Heritage (formerly Deer Commission for Scotland, but merged with SNH on 1st August). I am also Secretary, Highland Branch, British Deer Society, and Secretary, Cairngorm Speyside Deer Management Group. I wanted to get involved in the local community and put something back into the sector. It seems to have worked

    In the past I have contributed articles to the now defunct Stalking Magazine, and am very keen on writing.

    I now stalk regularly on 14,000 acres of high and low ground for roe, and am having the time of my life!!

    Speak soon.

    Welcome to the SD Site, a fair few members live just around the corner form you in all directions. You are very well placed to answer some burning questions that may need clearing up once the jungle drums start.

    As you are a keen writer, hope to read up on some of your stories.

    All The Best.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Ahhh, Rothiemurchus! That brings back memories of a few years ago, being up for the skiing and finding the road up to the accommodation at the lodge 'challenging'!

    Anyway, welcome aboard.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
