Not entirely a newby, I have been lurking here for a while - most questions have been (over)-answered and don't need to be asked again.
I am however, a Londoner. Not by choice, but by work and marriage.
I own, in order of usefulness (don't argue I have a glass of whiskey in my hand);
Swarovski Z6 Scope
Cocker Spaniel - Goes by the name of Zhukov (the Marshall) - not for deer
Sako 85 in 6.5 x55 (i like Swedes)
Volvo XC90 - gets me out of London
AYA #2 16g
I swapped from being a lurker to a participant because: has anyone used a Brittany as a deer dog?
