Hi All -
In my 40's, I've been shooting rifles for the last few years, which started after rabbits invaded my garden and ate all my newly planted purple sprouting plants. Began with a 12ft/lb air rifle and subsequently FAC air, 17HMR and .223. I have just been granted permission for a 6.5 x 55 for deer. I have also just (this weekend) passed a deer management course on which I shot my first Roe buck.
I see passing the course as the equivalent of passing a driving test; it is just the bare minimum and I recognise I have so much more to learn. Hopefully some of that knowledge will come from reading and contributing to this forum.
