Thread: Novice stalking in Yorkshire

    Novice stalking in Yorkshire

    Hi all

    In order to satisfy the FEO and allow me to acquire my rifle, would it be possible for anyone in the East Yorkshire area to invite me to accompany them stalking, as an absolute novice (at stalking) 55yr old? I have NSRA RCO certification, plus Club instructor in assorted disciplines, so I'm not a novice with firearms, but this would be to allow me to gain my 6.5 x 55.

    I know it's a tall order, but throw myself on the generosity of the members of this esteemed forum

    Many thanks in anticipation

    Isn't this a rather @rse about face way of doing it? If you don't have the land or aren't paying for stalking, what's the justification for the firearm? The norm would be to book some stalking with someone offering it for sale..... And go from there....
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Just to explain further:-

    I already have c/f (.222) on open ticket, and am strongly left handed, with all my firearms being of the sinistral nature (3 @.22, 1 @ .22 semi, 1 @ .17HMR and 1 @ .222) Now want a L/H Tikka in 6.5 x 55 in order to go stalking, but before it can be authorised, Humberside need to see evidence of invites etc for stalking, hence the request!!

    I'm not trying to gain an unfair advantage, nor subvert the firearms legislation, just to extend my capabilities

    I need to acclimatise myself to the more powerful calibre before I try and shoot anything living - have significant experience with rabbits etc, but not larger species. I've shot larger calibre (.303 and 7.63 x 54), but want to get used to MY l/h rifle, hence the conundrum

    Thanks again

    Give me a ring if you want to organise a paid outing. I'm based in Driffield and run a deer management and game shoot in the area. Currently looking over about 30 farms or 15,000 acres. Its my living though so no invite just paid stalking.
    regards john
