Im Steve, recently just finished a full career in the Army and started deer stalking 2 years ago. I'm fortunate to be good friends with Tony from South Ayrshire Deer Stalking. I have used his 308 Tikka T3 lite and I am more than comfortable with this rifle. I have already shot red, fallow and roe buck. so not a bad start. I'm currently in the process of applying for my firearms licence and I hope to attempt my DSC 1 some time next year. Looking forward to receiving lots of good advice from you all.
