Brians pic of him and his Pony just had me thinking. It is (I think) quite unusual for lowland stalkers to have ponies. But has anyone known of stalkers who use Ponies or other trained animals to get close to Deer. It is a well known fact that it is possible to get closer to a lot of wildlife while riding a Pony or Horse. I am sure I have heard of people using them as cover to walk behind and even shoot off the back (as in resting the gun on the back) of them.
I am aware of the possible safety issues involved!
