Just wanted to introduce myself and say how much I've been enjoying this website and the forum over the past couple of months. I am completely new to deer stalking and having a young family has created a lack of time (& money) for my hobbies at present
However I have been shooting air rifles, smallbore & shotguns since I was 8 and did a lot of competitive service rifle shooting in a previous career. I am about to join Maidenhead Target Shooting Club (http://www.maidenhead-target-shooting-club.org) to keep my eye in with the air rifle (BSA Superten).
Does any member know of a good club in or near Berkshire where I could get some deer stalking training and also some hands on with various rifles prior to deciding what to purchase? I've been a member of BASC since I was 11 so am thinking of pursuing my DSC via them. I've also still got to obtain my FAC.
Other hobbies / interests include fly fishing (mainly trout) and beekeeping (have kept bees since aged 11). Some of the money I make from selling honey is being diverted into my rifle purchase fund !
