Been on this forum for ages but found I had to re register so here goes again.
Been stalking for about 40 years now and shotgun shooting a bit longer. I used to be a professional stalking guide (sika, red & roe) by renting grounds and managing deer but after so many requests for other sports started my own sporting agency 25 years ago. I now operate in Scotland, Poland & South Africa. I'm one to the longest established owner managed sporting agents in the UK. Seems to be quite a bit of sneering posts here and there about people making money out of fieldsports - well, I'm proud to say that I keep the equivalent of about 10 people fully employed in rural Scotland.
I'm lucky enough to have either guided or participated in almost every form of (legal) shooting & stalking available in the UK and further afield from woodcock over pointers to sika stalking. My weakness is still a good day pigeon shooting or driven wild boar in Poland (no fences!). I'm too busy looking after clients to actually do much shooting or stalking (folk seem to think sporting agents play all the time - wrong!!).
