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.
