I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself asper the Forum/Site rules
My Name is Christopher Lightfoot and i have been involved inthe Game & Shooting Industry for all of my live so far.
Born and raised in the Scottish Borders i spent the firstfew years of my working life as a low ground keeper whilst part of myemployment included working in the stores of a business which i am sure a lotof you people will have heard of Game & Country
After a few years of commercial shooting and rearingpartridges and Pheasants i was given the opportunity to be the hill keeper onan estate a little further up the valley overlooking St Marys Loch. As much asi enjoyed the hill i was asked to come back and start as trainee sales managerfor Spratt's Game Foods which was also at the time owned by the same person asGame & Country.
Some 10 years haspassed since starting back with the original tribe and there have been buyouts, Acquisition’s, and take overs of both business's and i am still currentlyEmployed as sales Manager for Spratt's Game Foods whilst working with Game andcountry as an Agent.
Fortunately i get to keep my involvement within all aspectsof the sport/industry whilst also taking advantage of the office when the badweather sets in.
Stalking was never really my thing as i was more into thefox control and that line of things but as time passes and we expand our Gunroom at Game & Country i feel it is time i practiced what i preach andintend to get more involved. At present my rifle is a Remington 700 VSF 22-250with a ASE SL5 moderator and a leupold VX3 4.5x14x50 LR ideal for the verminbut will probably invest in something a little heavier as i also have a oldTikka M55 .243 which sits and gathers dust.
So this is my story if you have got this far thanks forreading.
