It appears I've broken the rules already by posting before I have introduced myself. Apologies to all for my rudeness.
My name's Andy. I live in the Highlands in the Strathspey area and have been here for a little over 10 years. I got into shooting - mainly clays - back in 2001 and then applied for an FAC in 2003 and got my first .22LR. It kind of blossomed from there and I got myself a .17hmr and a .243 and even worked as a clay shooting instructor for 3 years until recently.
However, although I spend many early mornings and summer evenings each stalking bunnies, I have never really had the time or opportunity to pursue the deer stalking thing - apart from a bit of camera stalking from time to time. Great fun.
However, last October I had the opportunity to shoot my first Roe - a yearling doe. That did it. I made the decision that this was the sport for me and since then have been working toward getting a start in the sport. I have only shot one other Roe since then - a yearling buck about 3 weeks ago that was making a nuisance of himself in my wife's bosses garden (about 20 acres!).
So I'm really a complete novice. I've just done my DSC1 with the Stalking School and am keen to learn, learn and learn, and eventually, hopefully, get myself some ground to shoot over. This forum seems just the place to get the advice I am going to need and I would welcome any help you could offer.
Apologies to you all once again,
