I live in Shropshire. I've been shooting deer for about five years. I've experience of deer control, park culls, recreational stalking and deer management. I've been fortunate enough to be trusted with the occasional client. I would class myself as a serious amateur and I have completed the DSC 2 qualification. I'm not bothered about trophies and would rather go after a sick or injured animal than a medal. I have recently bought a 6.5 55 Tikka T3 in a McMillan stock put together for me by Chris at UK Gunworks. The recoil is almost non-existent compared with my .308 and it is a lovely rifle.
