Ok, so I recently posted a thread about a rather nice red stag I shot, following the various comments etc I received a PM from someone who for now will remain nameless. It was an offer of assistance to help with the use of a 4x4 and winch etc, and also so they could be shown how to gralloch due to lack of experience.....sounded both helpful and an opportunity to assist a newby.
I emailed them back thanking them for the offer, but declining on the basis I am set up with everything I need etc, and that my permissions are limited to just me (set by landlords, not me) but offered to come out with him on his patch so show him the ropes etc with gralloching and alike.
No reply...... could this be someone simply out to get more land and steel my shooting? I noticed on another thread he had started that he has acquired 700acres of stalking locally hence my offer of helping out on his patch, I know this kind of thing goes on, but I hadn't experienced round this area, I think I'll be keeping my land closely under wraps!
If however I have got this wrong, and I am just assuming the worst of people I look forward to seeing if they pass comment on this thread
