I am going for a big ask here.
I got my DSC1 almost 2 years ago. In that time I have managed to shoot 2 deer, both munties. Don't have huge ground and have been unlucky with my paid stalks. 3 of them got a lovely walk in the countryside and only 1 of them managed to get close to pulling the trigger but I just couldn't get a clear shot. Aw well, great stalk though and my ground whilst compact and bejou does pop out the occasional muntie. Of course I regurlarly see them wandering the fields at night when I am out pest controlling and they completely ignore me shooting bunnies 20 feet from their noses. 2 there 2 weeks ago after midnight. Will the little sods ever show up in the day?, Um well actually one did last Sunday, 350 yards away, down wind as he disappeared over the boundry not to be seen again.
Anyhow, whilst I have read the books and seen the video and all that, I have only assisted with 2 grallochs. Therefore I really don't feel comfortable or competent in that part of the inspection. Bout the only thing I can't talk about with authority. (armchair warriors unite)
If there is anybody near me, Newbury or Basingstoke ish who wouldn't mind me tagging along with them and willing to teach me to gralloch properly I would be most grateful. Happy to help lug stuff about, donate to your favourite charity, buy you a beer or a cup of tea afterwards. Missus makes a mean rabbit pie. It would be venison but I'm running out. lol
Whilst the shooting is great I must stress I want to learn how to gralloch cleanly and properly and inspect for abnormalities. So when Mr Muntie gets to show his face again within range when I am on my own I will be happy about doing the proper procedure.
