After following this site for a while, (by proxy mainly, through IanF ) I decided it's time to register!
I've been stalking for the past 10 years and have enjoyed every second, although attempting to drag a Red Stag once, was somewhat of a low point.
I regularly shoot from .22LR to .308, with my 'go to' rifle being a moderated .270 Sako 75.
I also enjoy the other rewards of shooting and stalking, being the venison and game meat itself. I spend a fair amount of time butchering carcases and then hopefully turning them into something very edible. Hot/Cold smoking and Biltong making having almost turned into a religion!
Several of IanF's clients will testify to being used as guinea pigs for this purpose. So far, they have all survived! But I'll get one eventually, oh yesss!
Malc, just a thought, if you ever need a baby sitter for that fine hound of yours, you know where I am!!!
