Although I have been a member of The Stalking Directory since may 2010 I can't remember having introduced myself (my apologies to the moderators). I am an avid stalker and have about 1000 acres of farmland, moor and pasture over which I shoot mainly red deer. I shoot the odd fox and an ocassional roe deer. I had my first shotgun licence 40 years ago and I took up stalking 14 years ago. My favourite time is during the rut and calling stags in is the best and most exciting part. I shoot about twenty reds a year and everything I shoot is eaten by me and shared amongst friends.
