Just found and joined this forum today. What a great site!!
Richard, 37, live in East Yorkshire, work on the oil rigs (as a mudman), fortunate enough to have started shooting when barely a teenager, traditional route of beating, ferreting, pigeons rabbits rough shooting etc. Now I do alot of wildfowling and 'small scale' game shooting. Always been interested by wild deer and I suppose it was a natural progression that I would take up stalking. Got my FAC a couple of years ago, joined a syndicate if SW Scotland before I got my ticket but land very poor (solid forestry, only open ground is narrow fire breaks) so had remarkable lack of success. Sick of not even seeing a beast so treat myself to a bought day down south and was absolutely amazed by the number of deer down there, shot my first muntjac and first fallow on that very memorable occasion. Hope to get out and about a bit more this year.
Welcome, not been on here long myself but good informative site, loads of experience on here.
Welcome Mudman, I hope you enjoy the site. You will find there are some good people on here, willing to give sound advice and friendship along the way.
Hope your stalking opportunities continue to grow, and that success follows
