I am looking at getting back into stalking again after I recently got my FAC back after a long period without a rifle. I did dabble with stalking back in the mid 90's but I was very much a novice, although I certainly got my hands dirty with some Roe, Fallow and the odd Red.
I live up in North East Wales where we do have some Fallow but they are limited to central North Wales. I keep praying and hoping to see Roe become established here but from what others are saying they are having a tough time with Lampers and poachers (allegedly!). I should also admit that at the moment I don't have a full-bore on my ticket but good old North Wales Police were good enough to give me an open ticket for my .17HMR and .22LR recently, so I am hoping I can ask for something a bit more suitable for Deer.... a 6.5 x 55 seems to interest me (now there's a subject!).
Things seem to have changed a lot since the 90's and an entire industry has grown around the DSC. I could do with some sort of refresher experience (it's been a while!) and I'm really not too sure of which route to take next, what would you advise?
Any advice would be gratefully received.
