Whilst at a large meeting at work today, I was talking to a Swedish colleague of mine. I had never met the guy before. I mentioned that I would love to visit Sweden one day.
He asked what the reason was I was so keen to visit. I mentioned that I was a keen stalker and would like to one day have a stalking trip to Sweden in the hope of getting an elk (moose). To my extreme surprise he said, I am also a hunter
Needless to say the rest of the day was not quite as boring as most of these corporate meetings normally are.
He had never seen nor heard of a muntjac, one of his responses was " a deer with tusks, are you sure?" and after trading a few stories he offered to take me out in Sweden to try for a moose or caribou or even both!!! What he wants in return is a chance of a muntjac.
Has anyone else been stalking in Sweden?
What are the airlines like with transfer of firearms?
What calibre would be recommended with shooting elk (moose)?
What is the best time of year to go to Sweden stalking, taking into account weather, seasons etc?
I have been grinning from ear to ear since I left the meeting, just want to get a date in the diary now.
He is going to speak to 2 of his mates and they may also come over for the muntjac, so 2 of my lucky, soon to be decided mates will also be able to come!!!! They definitely owe me a beer or two!!!
