Hi, I am new to deer stalking, ive just completed and passed my DSC1, and am keen to find some land to shoot over or be mentored. I have the possibility of shooting over an estate in Oxford, but as I say its just a possibility at the moment. If anyone has any suggestions for a newbie like me im all ears!
Ive handled scoped weapons for a good few years now though mainly in the military, my love of shooting has followed me from work to pleasure and I enjoy being out in the countryside. I also shoot clay pigeon and air rifle.
Im considering joining a shooting club as I also enjoy long range shooting.
I own my own shotgun but do not have a firearms certificate yet, mainly because of the afformentioned lack of anywhere to shoot.
Ive come to this forum in order to gain some knowledge about deer stalking from the people who do it regularly.
Any tips or advice will always be well recieved.
Oh and I forgot to mention I have just got a bullmastiff pup, do they make good deer dogs?
Many thanks and im sure I will enjoy looking around!
