First post here, first post anywhere, I was introduced to this site by a work colleague, anyway I live in Bristol and have been shooting full bore since I was 14, been into stalking just over a year, did the DSC1 thing and have been lucky to get permission on 105 acres. The land is bordered by a 200 acre wood so lots of deer about, most seen was 13 in the field at once! Land is flat so high seat only, have only taken two deer so far 1 Munty and 1 Roe Buck, freezer empty again so need to get out soon. I do a lot of range work as I shoot target rifle as well, Rem 700 in .243 for stalking. I believe I have been very lucky with the land, itís just boring on your own so always try to arrange stalking with a mate, safety as well.
Claim to fame, broke my leg at a clay shoot, was so far from a road they had to get me to the ambulance on a back board on the forks of a tractor (I am a big lad) but the reason was not my size it was too dangerous for them to try and carry me (very muddy) I was given two options, tractor ride to the ambulance or wait for a helicopter, I took the tractor option. Strange thing is no one got any photos, must be down to still having the gun with me.
This site looks very informative and with luck I may find some fellow stalkers close to home.
