Good morning chaps,
what sort of success ratio do you guys have? I am very new to stalking, completed my DSC1 in September and I am still looking for my first deer.
I have been on four paid stalks now:
first stalk for muntjac, saw about 8 but no opportunity of a safe shot
second stalk, roe - only saw out of season does
third stalk, roe - no safe shot on the one doe seen
fourth stalk, fallow - didn't see a single deer.
These as were all with estate rifles, I now have my own .243 and am desperate to get my first deer of any species lol! I know it's just a case of putting the time in and I am still looking hard for some permission for stalking local to me as paid stalking is getting beyond my limited budget.
how long did it take to get your first deer?
