Just had a very enjoyable few days, even if the weather let us down some what, with a fine group of SD boys. So thought is was about time I joined the SD myself.
Sorry should have added that my name is Andy and I shoot deer, Fallow and Muntjac in the Hertfordshire area. Been "stalking" for about 7 years. Started as a result of going beating regularly and listening to the keeper complaining (I know I was surprised that a keeper would complain about anything) about the Muntjac in the cover crop. I said I'd shoot them for him. He seemed surprised and said Ok and found me on his door a week later with my firearms application in hand asking for a signature. Did my DSC1 soon after getting my rifle and shot a mj doe on my first outing in a high seat.
Now shooting around 20 - 25 deer a season. Shoot 243 and 308 (both being Win Mod 70's of course).
Have had the pleasure to meet a few of the SD lads over that past couple of years.
