Thread: Hiya - I've just joined

    Hiya - I've just joined

    A couple of friends suggested I join the Stalkig Directory. To introduce myself; I was in the TA for 10 years (7 Para RHA) until I was 27 which kindled my interest in shootng, Dad bought me a shotgun for my 28th Birthday and 5 years later I decided to apply for a Firearms licence. I've now been shooting outside th Army for nearly 20 years and I'm a member of the Bristol Muzzle Loaders, Yate Pistol Club, FCSA (UK) and Sheild Practical Shot Gun Club. I am also a member of BASC and have my Level 1 DSC, the BDS, the GWCT (Secretary of Bristol Committee) and Beat/Shoot/Stalk most weekends. I also have four gun dogs; 2 Springers, a cocker and a Black Lab.

    I stalk purely for venison so rarely shoot stags or bucks unless they are prickets. I butcher my own deer but can't afford a larder yet so tend to use my outhouse in the winter or borrow the keepers cold store at the shoot I'm a gun on in the summer.

    I love all forms of shooting, archery and dog handling. I have three kids, the oldest is 16 and has his own Firearms and Shogun Certs and has ben beating since he was 5 years old.

    All the best and good luck with the April Roe Bucks, I saw 5 in a group on the 31st March but they have now diappeared! Typical!
