For the purposes of my post 6pointer will be called D.
This morning i was out with D for the second time in the last few days doing my level 2.
I am not personally a great fan of blow by blow accounts so bear with me and i will give you the barebones of two fantastic mornings.
I am a recreational stalker who has over the years assisted in Deer management, i think that a great deal of stalkers fall into that category.
D is a deer manager, short and sweet that is the fact.
I had two stalks on different ground with D watching, not missing a single thing and just adding a comment or two and the pertinent questions.
got a buck each morning both young 6 pointers, lovely condition beasts.
Both stalks involved identifying the animals selected for cull (gender obviously) ensuring safe shot backstops and stalking into to good practice distances for humane shot placement.
D watched the grallochs and again just passed relevant comments and asked questions as we went.
While it was great for me to pursue my level 2 the compentance and knowledge from just talking to D made my mornings a truly wonderful experience.
I am definitely not one of the "young ones" i have been around a while and seen a bit and i can honestly say my friend D is a genuine good fella and a first class stalker.
Just to finish theres a story attached hwen i l;eft my watch behind after gralloching, D went back with a friend and got it totally of his own initiative.
Thats what its all about.
