just an intro. I'm from south east Ireland and most of my stalking is for sika and fallow.
My favourite calibre for deer is the 270 win. I also like the 243 and 22-250 for fox control and the odd deer. Favourite guns are blasers (I'm still trying to work up the courage to put a deposit on one scary price tag). Favourite optics are zeiss and Swarovski, again very expensive but like everything in life you get what you pay for. I like tracking with dogs and admire anyone with a trained deer dog. A good tracking hound is worth their weight in gold.
dislikes are poachers. Irish deer numbers are seriously down because of these gougers. I believe a recreational stalker shouldn't be allowed sell wild deer to a game dealer.
Anyway I look forward to chatting with you all.
