My fellow stalking buddies recommended i sign on which is an IT miracle as i don't do blogs, twitters, facebooks etc. Stalking for many years in Cornwall. Devon, Dorset and a bit in Scotland on Roe, Red and Sika which is why i have a .308 and .243 to cover all options. Have enjoyed stalking alone all these years but have now acquired an HPR with a Hungarian accent, it was now or never and am now scanning all past deer dog training advice. Interesting reading !! I go to sleep thinking of some past wounded deer episodes and what would have been different with a deer dog. Perhaps a lot less time on my hands and knees in gorse, brambles and bracken with torch in mouth looking for blood trail i suspect!
