I am just giving a brief summary of who I am and this is the first time I have ever been on any form of forum etc, so here goes.
Love most hunting, but really enjoy stalking, I am quite experienced and enjoy some fairly local fallow and a little muntjac, also have some kind friends who invite me to stalk roe. I have 17hmr for pests and a 243 and 308 in the armoury.
I am really busy at work & under a bit of pressure, so stalking is my way of unwinding and not thinking about work. Have a couple of really good mates who stalk and introduced me a few years ago now.
Hate the politics and crap around some stalkers, sorry have to be honest. I just want to enjoy my sport with like minded people. I am not a trophy hunter in and still get a thrill from a good stalk on a yearling or pricket. I have shot a few nice animals and did not enjoy it any more or less than a non trophy animal. I just like being outside with the rifle I guess! I am always up for a cull trip rather than a trophy hunt?
I am about to try my hand at reloading soon when I learn enough and get the basic tools, really would like some advice for an absolute novice?
Love the website and look forward to using it more in the future and meeting some like minded friends.
