I hope that this is in the correct section, if not maybe the Mods could let me know and move it to a more appropriate section please.
I am just getting in to stalking and want to learn and gain as much experience and knowledge as possible. I have a .243 which is conditioned for Deer but with a "Mentoring Condition". My mentor (Who is a very knowledgable and helpfull chap that I think the world of) has invited me out with him to stalk and shot but I can not go stalking whith him to many of his "stalking grounds" because it would involve being away from home for several days at a time, something that my dearly beloved is not too keen on - She has heard out about my "reputation" from when i was in my twenties when I was "free and single", well before I met her! My life has changed around now but it still leaves doubt in her mind unfortunately. Hence the reason for this post!
I want to gain as much experience as possible and would love the opportunity to accompany anyone in the Lancashire Area on a couple of stalking trips if they have any that are within a reasonable distance. I am not asking for permission to shoot, I will be more than happy to just watch, listen and learn and maybe take some photos (With your permission, of course).
I would welcome any suggestions or constructive thoughts!
