I have been a long time lurker of this site and have no prior experience of stalking (bar a bit of rabbiting) however have considerable general shooting experience. A friend arranged a "beginners stalking course" up in scotland for 4 days this coming February and as such I have been sucking in as much info as possible
I am 34 and have been out of the shooting sports for pretty much the last 8-10 years. I took a sabatical from shooting due to being unable to dedicate sufficient time to it being a travelling consultant role. But now I have got where I want work wise and can focus on some more interesting aspects of life
From 13-18 in the school shooting team I shot both rimfire and full bore approximately 4 times a week (lucky bugger i know ). During uni I spent 4 years in the TA and was a member of the regimental shooting team there, a completely different type of shooting! During this time I was also a member of a target club and had a FAC until I was about 25-26. Had on my ticket 22, 308 target rifles and a 9mm, boy did I cry when that changed.
Well anyways, looking forward to getting back into the sport from a slightly different angle. Any questions feel free to get in touch.
