    Poll - How frequently/ what stalking do you do?

    Reading a post here yesterday that suggested that many members here were hobby stalkers that went out on guided stalks a few (perhaps 3 or 4) times per year - what do you do?

    The day job (and 3 young children) get in the way of more stalking, I'm afraid...!

    Try to get out a couple of times a week or more if I can. Will slow down a bit now for a few months due to work but hopefully still get out weekly

    If your definition of a hobby stalker is anyone that doesn't do it all day every day to put bread on the table then yes I think the majority on the site will be hobby stalkers. I think there are still a few catagories you are missing though. Some take on part time/voluntary work in different capacities with Deer management organisations for example or leases/contracts with forestry groups. I know quite a few guys that take large numbers of deer every year outside of a full time job.

    Conversly I have never met anyone involved with deer full time that would only describe what they do as a means to an end. Its a fine line between hobby and work.
