I am new to deer stalking but an experienced shot (if not a little rusty) Grew up in rural Australia where rabbits and roo's were the normal quarry. Since immigrating to the UK I have taken up clay busting with the very occasional driven shoot (Pheasants).
My yearning to go hunting again has led me to apply for my FAC (and to enjoy the ridicolous wait!) I have (or at least expecting to have anytime in the next 3 months) a 243 and 308 on my licence but with a caveat that I show use of the 308 for hunting within 3 months of my licence being approved. All very logical and quite progressive considering some of the hoops I have heard other forces making people jump through.
My reason for joining the site was to hear and share opinions with like minded people. Could anyone direct me towards an appropriate mentor for deer stalking in Kent. As it will be the first time I have stalked and shot deer, I am hoping someone who will show me good value for money and give me a good introduction to stalking.
Not looking for anything flash, just some recommendations of people with experience and patience who will take the time to teach me properly.
Many thanks in advnace for your help and suggestions.
