On Sunday 04/12/11 until Tuesday 06/12/11 I went stalking with Paul Day at Turvey. This was the first time I had met Paul and he was a genuine and down to earth person. He was very accommodating and welcoming. On my first morning we were up bright and early for a sit in a very cold high seat looking over a ride. After around half an hour a Muntjac Doe scampered across the ride without stopping and about a quarter of an hour later she walked back across, Paul stopped her with a whistle and I was able to take a shot with a good result. Back to the digs for breakfast. That afternoon we were back at Paulís place where we slowly walked the rides and came across a little Muntjac buck, this was deer number two in the bag.
on our second day we sat up the high seat but didnít see anything so we decided to have a walk as by this time we was both freezing. We didnít manage to see anything on our walk so we went back to the digs for breakfast and a hot coffee. On our afternoon stalk we walked the rides where I shot a fox which I was more than happy to do. We continued our walk and came across a Muntjac Doe who came from out of cover and walked half way across the ride, Paul stopped her with a whistle, I fired and she ran back into cover. We went to the location of the hit and found good blood sign. As the light was fading fast and it had started to rain we got our torches out and proceeded to search for the deer which we found after around 15 minutes.
All in all it was a very enjoyable and successful couple of days with the great company from Paul. I would highly recommend anybody who is interested in contacting him.
