Hi everybody out there.
I am delighted to be able to join this stalking community, having been shooting formally since the age of 11..many decades ago! My first stalking was in my late teens with my lovely 6.5 mannlicher schoener ( now alas, no longer with me) but until I returned to Scotland 15 years ago, most of my shooting was pistol and rifle through my clubs in London and at Bisley and at a friends farm in East Sussex. I mainly do small bore rabbitting and full bore target now, but with empty slots on my "ticket" and both Roe and Red deer on my brother's hill farm, I will soon be lifting my eyes to the hills again. Just about to buy a used .223 steyr mannlicher pro hunter, though worried about the forend and cannot tell if it is a mark 1 or a mark 2. I am also trying to finalise the detail for an almost full custom "heavy stalking" rifle in 6.5X47 lapua, which I would also be shooting on the range up to 1000 yards, as I love long range shooting. Happy hunting to you all.
