I have held a firearm cert since 1956 and stalked since 1977. .22 target shooting was my main liesure activity till our club lost it's range. My next club only had 3 firing points and as I was shooting for the county reserve team practise was hard to come by. Bought a .270 centre fire and started deer stalking. Found it too powerful for roe so now use a .243. Pity it has taken me so long to find this site. I am, as you might guess, a creaking gate but the gate is still on it's hinges. All my stalking has been in the Dumfries and Galloway area. Only interest is in Roe and all my heads are now stored in cardboard boxes. My son also stalks and we usually go out together.
