    Why did you start stalking deer?

    I am curious why people REALLY got into stalking. The first and primary reason. In the list there will be other reasons that are also true but what is the honest and real reason you started?

    I had just got some pigeon shooting and, after taking about 30 birds to ask the landowner if he ate pigeons, or had friends who did, he told me I was doing a good job, brought out a farm map and told me where the deer were and asked me to cull some. Bear in mind this was the first day I had shot on this farm.

    I went with no 2, as the closest, althought I started stalking with my father 20 years ago and can think of no better way to spend my time (can't see how anyone could possibly make any proper money out of stalking coz I've been trying for 15 years as a pro and still struggle to make ends meet.

    No. 3 is the closest to my situation. The landowner who's shoot I was beating on wanted the deer reduced and the keeper wasn't keen to do it. The keeper would come out with me, but preferred me to do the job.

    I just grew into it with my uncle taking me out. Its all part of being in a country family that hunts, shoots and fishes.
