Thread: New Stalker near Bristol

  1. #1

    Red face New Stalker near Bristol

    Hi Guys,
    Just joined the forum. Based in Yate near Bristol. Have Browning O/U 12g, Sako .17 HMR, Tikka .223, Marlin .44 underlever and about to buy .308(probably another Tikka or Sako).
    Any advice on stalking would be appreciated. Any offers of "showing me how it is done" within a 60 radius of Yate would also be appreciated. Doing my first stalk on sunday with BASC instructor which should be great.
    Also advice on a 4 x 4 for dual use i.e some stalking work but also used as second car.
    Several people locally use Jimny's although they seem to be better off road than on road. Ideal vehicle to suit my circumstances would be Freelander TD4 circa 2005 but quality worries me.

    hi BB

    there are a few guys i know that would take you out for taster sessions etc but i dont expect they would do it free of charge and without meeting you first

    Hi Martin,
    Went out last sunday but didn't see anything. Going again sunday week.
    Everyone has now told me don't get a freelander and some have suggested a Vitara or Jimny. Both seem a good idea.
    Now have new Sako 85 laminated stainless in .308 on order arriving ina about a week.
    thanks for advice.
