I was hoping someone might be able to help me. I have done a bit of accompanied stalking in the past but I was hoping to find a syndicate place. I have my DSC level 1 and I am working towards my level 2 but I need bit more practise with gralloching first. I am 25, insured and I am based in Matlock in Derbyshire but do not mind travelling at all.
I have a wide selection of rifles, .22lr, .22 hornet, .22/250, .223, .243, .270 and a .300win mag, although the .223 and .300 are only used for targets. My experience is with red, roe and fallow. I have held my FAC and SGC since I was 15 and I am very safe and experienced with rifles but my stalking experience is still in its early days. Off the top of my head I think I have shot roughly 30-40 deer.
I would preferably like a small, friendly syndicate with experienced members who might be willing to help me, mainly with gralloching and butchery.
I would more than happily help and pull my weight with maintenance, mending high seats etc, and would be willing to gralloch everyone's deer to give me the practise .
Alternatively, if anyone would be willing to let me tag along with a stalk (not shoot) and maybe gralloch any shot deer I would be very grateful. I am eager to learn and would love the experience .
I know I'm asking a lot, sorry.
