As promised my follow up on the thread: http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...rman-syndicate
I have had my interview and i passed . The interview might have been a slight formality because i got several good reviews and recommendations by other stalkers prior to me talking to the commission thats makes the final decision, but its now official. From the beginning of april I am in a syndicate in the North of the Veluwe, which is our biggest Nature Reserve in the middle of the Netherlands. It is about 2850 hectares and there are 8 people (including me) in the syndicate. The permission consists of about 85% woodland and the rest heather, arable lands, meadows and streams/wetland. Species are wild boar, red deer, roe deer, fallow deer and muflon. Last year 110 wild boar where taken, 20 red deer, 25 fallow, not sure how many roe and muflon.
Happily looking forward to this new "adventure" which off course I will be sharing with the SD in stories and pictures. Maybe in future i will get some more opportunity for swap stalks. For now i will be exploring the grounds and possibilities and begin to enjoy hunting and shooting again.
