Hello from not so sunny South Wales.
I've been managing/stalking deer for the best part of 15 years. Own the shooting rights to a couple farms and lease a few as well.
Shoot with a .308 Remington SPS tactical (yup, not everyones idea of a stalking rifle) and a .243 Pro-hunter. Mainly shoot reds, but just getting in to Roe. Also shot Fallow & Muntjac.
