Hello everyone , only just registered and thought I had better do my introduction .
My name is George ,I am a keeper about 8 miles out of Aberdeen and look after about 2700 acres .We do 4000 pheasants , 1000 ducks and try to stay away from commercial shooting at all costs .lol We have a syndicate that shoots and we have been here for 21 years .
I started stalking way back when ! and have done a bit of commercial stalking , hobby stalking for my own pleasure and the usual estate stuff .
I did the old Woodlands competence and then the Advanced stalker course over fifteen years ago with Mr Richard Prior . (A very knowledgeable man !!!) but now am in the process of doing it all again !
except now its called DSC1 and DSC2 lolol.
Anyway ,my passion is Roe deer .I have shot a few stags and ventured south to shoot a few Muntjac ,but cant get passed my passion for Roe .
My rifle of choice is a Styer Mannlicher .243 , always has been .I use mainly 70 grain ballistic tips .If need be I can load it up to shoot anything our countryside has to offer .
Once upon a time I would have been trophy minded (been there done that ! ), but not now . I enjoy the stalk and a clean kill whenever possible .
I would like a crack at Fallow sometime ? that will come in due course I,m sure , but Stags are a thing of the past I think ? (I am allergic to hills these days !)lol
There are bound to be others from this area on the forum ,but if you need to know anything that you think I can help with ? then please get in touch .
Looking forward to enjoying the site
