Hi all, my name is James and I'm 29 years old from the North East of England where I am employed as an education manager in a young offenders institute.
I am a keen fly fisherman and hunter, I have been hunting with shotguns since I was 19 years old and a couple of years ago moved into hunting with rifles. The land I have permission on and where I am a member of the pheasant syndicate only allows me to hunt small game with rifles, but I go over to Norway every year to visit my brother and participate in the moose and roe deer hunting.
My firearms consist of:
.22 Gammo Air rifle - rat shooting
.410 Webley & Scott - rat shooting, rabbits & squirrel
12g Browning cynergy - pheasant, geese, duck, pigeon & clay shooting
12g AYA - rough gun & small game
22LR CZ 452 Varmint - rabbits
22LR Ruger - rabbits
22-250 Ruger M77 Mk II - Fox
.243 Tikka T3 Lite - Roe Deer & fox
I am now looking into taking my DCS1 as I'm becoming more and more interested in deer stalking. I would like to learn as much as possible about the deer stalking side of things so if there is anybody in the North East who needs any help and would wouldn't mind me tagging along purely to help/ watch that would be fantastic.
I'm also interested in hearing from anybody with syndicate places available in the North East or offers days stalking to help me learn the necessary knowledge.
