    evening all!

    live in northants went into keepering when I left school but somehow ended up as a builder but still shoot on the estate where I worked, iv got my d.m.q qualifications and take a keen interest in all things fieldsports from foxing/stalking to working terriers and I occasionally scare a pigeon or two over decoys. thought id join this site to keep upto date with all you shooters out there, iv had .222 22/250 and currently using a heavy barrelled .243 thanks for reading and look forward to chatting to like minded people.
