Apparently I have to do an intro for you lads, so here it is....
I've been shooting since I was 13 and am now 43, that's 30 years for you mathematicians. Where's my life gone !!!!! The usual route was taken i.e. airgun,shotgun and then small and full bores together. I made sure that the rifles were started together by doing my DSC 1 before I applied for my FAC and counted on the good nature of our licensing dept to deliver, thankfully they did. I regularly control the local vermin in our area even using a larsen in my urban garden, 53 maggies this year so far.You can hear the songbirds at breakfast instead of the mad chattering of our murderous 'friends'. They drive me nuts, or used to HaHa !
Rabbiting,decoying,wildfowling and foxing are what I do most locally on my patch. I enjoy introducing newcomers to our sport, by showing them how it's done in a safe and fun way. That way we increase our support and educate the misinformed, ignorant and sway the non committed majority (all my neighbours ask what my maggie total is to date, some put up bird boxes to take advantage of their new haven). I'll get off my soap box now,Sorry. Stalking is my main passion, I've been from Devon to Scotland, mainly after Roe and had some good stalking this year. I'm looking for my own stalking patch because i don't enjoy looking at another stalker/ keeper's a**e all day long !!!!! My point is, that I have now gained enough experience to know a well looked after ground and would really love that responsibility myself. I have larder access and outlets on a small scale, so all I need now is to get that permission. Don't laugh boys i can hear you all from here HaHa !!!!!
I really look forward to chatting to you all.
