Hi every one just stumbled across this website here is a bit about me:
a year ago i went to africa....i had been shooting rabbit with my air arms s310, and whilst over there the surf went flat so I decided to go hunting and ended up shooting a lovely little impala...no trophy by African standards but its a trophy to me, i had the skin tanned and sent over as a memento and promised my self i would continue hunting when i got back to cornwall...after a long slog i found some one that was wiling to teach me to stalk, its about nine months since then, i have been stalking here and there but life was throwing things at me out of my control (redundancy/break ups/moving house etc) the stalking wasnt going well either, i wouldnt see deer, then someone would go in the evening and shoot 2 in the same spot i had stood that morning, then i would see them and they would be out of season, then i would see them and they would be "travelling" and we couldnt get them to stop etc etc etc. I had told my surf buddy i was going to give up stalking and put the money i am saving for a rifle towards a jet ski, as it just wasnt happening for me. So i said i would go one last time even though i have been ill with a throat infection, i got up at 3.45am realised i was to ill to stalk so i grabbed my phone and was going top make the call - then i thought i may as well go as it could be the last time i ever go.....and i shot my first roe buck!
Bring on that 6.5 x 55 i wanted!
