Thought I would just introduce myself as a new member. I have been browsing this site for a while now and thought I would register. It seems friendly and the discussions are interesting and informative for a novice stalker.
I am based in Dorset.
I only tried shooting in February of last year, a have a go session with a 28 bore at a local clay school, I was bitten by the bug. These days I go clay shooting, (very) rough game shooting, lamping for bunnies and foxes and deer stalking.
I tried deer stalking for the first time early this year on a paid for outing with a professional stalker. I did DSC1 in the summer. And yes I now have my own rifle.
I really enjoy my stalking trips even if they are unsuccessful, as I love being out and about in such a lovely part of the world.
