My introduction to the craft of deer stalking came inNov 1992 when I passed a deer management course with BASC at Birches Valley,Rugeley, Staffs. This led to the opportunity to cull fallow deer on Cannock Chasewith Senior Forestry Ranger, Peter Pursglove and continued with my passing the ‘carcasemanagement’ course, run by David Stretton at Donnington in 1994.
Since that time I have been a member of various syndicates in the Scottishhighlands, borders and currently in Oxon and Somerset. I have wider field craftexperience working dogs and beating on local pheasant shoots. In 1999, I spenta year with my family in Zimbabwe working as a manager/guide on photographicand hunting safaris near Victoria Falls National Park.
