Hi all, Im Stewart Smith, 38, from County Durham. Thats Gods country, just south of Newcastle for all you southerners
Theres been a steady progression of weaponry from an early age, it started with pocket knives, home made bows and arrows, catapults then eventually a 20g shotgun when I was physically big enough to hold one! Kids cant have all of those things now can they without the police showing up?!!
Ive been an avid game shooter since childhood with my father and brother but a couple of years ago I decided to apply for my FAC and bought a Browning T-Bolt 17HMR for bunny bashing and the odd fox. Loved it! That quickly became an obsession so I then purchased a Remington 700 SPS .243Win with moderator which I use mainly on my pheasant syndicate land for foxing.... not had a bleeding sniff of a fox since I bought it!
Went on my very first stalk a couple of nights ago under the guidance of Keith Scott on Blagdon estate and blow me... I managed to shoot two Roe bucks. Now I'm well and truly hooked....... this is going to be expensive.... but a lot of fun!! What the hell?!! Cant cost me any more than the ex wife can it?!!
Im hoping to do my DSC1 in a couple of months.
