Well I only have until January of 2014 until I retire from the military, and the wife wants to experience this living overseas thing on a bigger scale than Australia. So we are thinking about applying for jobs in Molesworth in the UK, and a few places in Germany with the US Defense Department or with Civillian US Contractors on the bases.
I understand after jumping through the correct hoops in the correct order, I might be able to own a rifle and hunt there in England. I know it has been talked about before on this forum, as well as Accuratereloading.com and others.
What would Molesworth be like to be a stalker, and do the occasional driven pheasant?
It appears as though the UK has Barasinga, Pere David's Deer, Sika, Reindeer, CWD, Muntjac, Fallow, Roe, Red, and probably a few others.
Is their stalking for the Pere David's, Barasinga and Reindeer?
Would their be any stalking of reds or fallow in that area?
I would be fairly happy with a 17 HMR in Anschutz form, a Sauer 202 with barrels in 243 and 30-06 or 9.3x62, and a maybe a spare Tikka T3 varmint in 6.5x55, and a couple of shotguns to make that work. Probably a Beretta 12 Gauge over under, and a reasonable 2nd hand Spanish sidelock for shoots that required it.
Could I do 5 guns?
We'll probably end up with a VW Diesel station wagon for the wife, and a Defender 110 wagon for me to drive to work and get dirty.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
