Hello, I am new-ish to stalking, although I have done a wee bit in the dim, distant, past, and have an ambition to do some more now I have the time with retirement looming. I thought I should get myself properly trained - so I am doing my DSC1 later this year (my son did his a month or so ago and highly recommended it as a 'way in' rather than just start shooting deer). I currently have a .17HMR an .22LR for varminting with openings for .243 and .308 and mods on my FAC. I have an eye for a Steyr Mannlicher in .243 in the first instance and, once I get into it, plan to up-gun and add the .308. I have almost a lifetime's experience of small arms, thanks to Her Majesty. I am in occassionally sunny, but mostly wet, Cornwall . Any hints,tips and guidance welcome for an old 'new' boy.
