I had a discussion with my FAO today, i told him i had a new 5000 acre permission and had been asked by the farmer to control Deer. I do not have any Deer species on my licence, so when i asked if i could be considered to have the Deer added to my licence i was told that I need to get a Mentor to help me gain some experience first. A couple of stalks and a brief letter outlining what experience i gained.
So i am on the look out for a kind person to take me under their wing, and give me the the start to the basics of a good safe and humane excecution of a stalk. I know this is a bit of an imposition but you dont get if you dont ask.
I have my own .243 Tikka and have been told i can even take a shot if accompanied by a mentor.
Please contact me if you are that person, even if its to give some advice to this matter.
