I have been shooting a long time, and in the past have shot a couple of deer with friends.
A while back I did my level 1 with the idea this would help get further involved with stalking.
Living in East Lothian this did not help.
Recently I have decided to get more into stalking and with this in mind, have been to a couple of BDS meetings and have met some decent folk.
I started out looking for a syndicate place and had a couple of very good offers of places from folk on here (thanks) ,but after some serious consideration I have decided that at the moment, I do not have the knowledge or experience to take these offers up. They both offered the possibility of Red, and I would have hated to put myself in the position where eagerness put me in a position I could not handle! (shooting a muckle beast miles from the car or similar).
I want to build up my knowledge this year so have decided to do a few day stalks under the guidance of someone in the know.
I hope to keep you all posted with how I get on, and if anyone is in the position to help out (own gun ,insurance,level 1 etc etc) I would love to hear from you.
I would consider a syndicate or similar with small numbers expected ,something where hopefully other members could help teach me the ropes.
