Hi to all,
I Have been trawling through the site for a while now and felt that it would be benificial to join in as I can see a lot of experience out there. My name is John and as you can guess I run Hungarian Vizslas. Yes, I have got the patience of a saint and they look just as good and give the same thrill when they go on point as when I had my 1st 25 years ago. I have been shooting in one form or another for to many years to remember, mainly small shoot style driven game, pigeon and I buy one good treat day a year.
My deer stalking is mainly Fallow and perhaps an odd muntjac and I came to be involved in it due to the kindness of a vey good friend who allows me to stalk with him on his land where I am a member of a small pheasant syndicate inHertfordshire. I owe this chap a lot and I hope he recognises himself in my introduction.
I passed my Level 1 in 2002 and am about to registar for level 2, any tips and pitfall avoidance whilst doing this would be gratefully received as I do not wish to end up paying a fortune to do this and have the enjoyment knocked out of the acheivement by greed and unscrupulous practices.
I use two rifles, my stalking rifle is a Sako .243 with a PES sound mod, no two is a Anschutz .22 rimfire. I also have a .17 HMR on my ticket, as yet to purchase.
Anyway I would imagine enough people are asleep after reading this marathon so speak to you soon. It would seem that there is a few people out there from the Shropshire area and it would be nice to have some kind of contact. The beer is of the highest quality in my area and for a small place we are spoiled for choice.
