Thread: Hello from Worcestershire

    Hello from Worcestershire

    Hi All,

    It has been a long time since I last visited the site so thought I had better re-introduce myself.
    I was bought up in rural Bucks and roamed the woodlands and farms near my home with airgun and penknife, not something a kid could do these days!!! Muntjac were just starting to move into the area at the time.

    My interest in deer stalking was stimulated when I spent several weeks on an estate in NW Scotland in the early eighties. I was supposed to be doing fieldwork for my geology degree, but spent most of the time assisting the stalker/ghillie and pony man, no quads then!!!

    I spent many years living and working in urban environments until late 90's when we moved to Worcs and I re-connected with the countryside and shooting. I took the DSC 1 at RAC about 5 years ago and have accompanied others on stalks but as yet have not acquired a FAC. Currently a probationary member of Worcester Norton SC.

    Cheers Ian

    Hi Ian,

    Welcome to the site - it's a mine of hunting information and opportunities (with the odd cyber tantrum or happy-slapping thrown in!). I live in Herefordshire, work in Worcestershire and stalk in both, plus Shropshire too. There's a good local SD group starting up - we meet up on the first Friday of the month for a gossip, so you'd be very welcome.

    By the way, your user name will cause great confusion as we have an IanF already

    Cheers for your reply Adam,

    Does the group you mention meet on or offline (ie a pub!). Thanks for the tip about my user name, I guess I had better change it quickly before I confuse anyone.

    Regards Ian

    Hi there!

    I'm Spartacus!

    Good to have you onboard - you are obviously a great bloke with a wicked sense of humour, and probably modest and charming into the bargain.

    Like me!

    Oh God, I think I've fallen into a parallel universe filled with IanFs...

    Ian from Worcs - we meet in the pub; usually the New Inn, Pembridge, Herefordshire but the beer's terrible so we're open to new experiences if you've got a decent local? As for the real Ian F - you and Jo are always welcome too.

    Hi to you both,

    IanF, it took me a while but I get the joke....very good..only people of (or above) a certain age would understand the reference.
    Not sure where Pembridge is, may be a bit far for me as I live in Evesham and work in Swindon, but let me know when you are next thinking of meeting.

    Cheers Ian (ex F)
