I am reasonably seasoned and have been rough shooting for about 35 years....but nearly all pottering on small permissions. I mainly use a 12g Berretta but have some older guns for wildfowling around the Colchester area. I am retired from the Military and took my German Licence (jagdschein) whilst serving out there. I am a member of the Colchester Garrison shoot (pottering only) and the Colchester wildfowlers. I have quite a bit of experience with Deer stalking as required for the jagdschein and the BDS woodland stalkers cert. I have a small stalking area in Berkshire with a manageable number of both Roe and Muntjac but shoot only from a ladder due to it being my bosses "garden" I have a .243 for this which does the job nicely.
