I tell ya, just got back from 3 days stalking and the insults are flying already. I keep telling you John, I will save all the hair I loose from my haircuts just for you, so you can cover the large bald spot up of yours for the highland winter :D and any left over will help senior guide out as well.

I hope he is enjoying Micky Mouse world :roll: and lets also hope he gets some of that roll on face cammo to cover up the shin off the top of his head. Any left he can share it with Robin. Thinking about it me and Alex are the only ones that are not follicly challenged :D

Yes about 8 weeks to go and this year I think will mark the 30th year for me :roll: just need me knees to hold out:old:

Hey Tommy, hope you're well. Yes, looking forward to the week, but due to selling my house and moving out into temporary accommodation, I've not been able to give it much of a thought so far.

I'm just hoping I've not packed essentials for stalking in inaccessible boxes....

Looking forward to catching up with a few familiar faces, and meeting some new ones.

Who else is coming?

Sounds good mate, didn't realise stav was coming up. Glad we'll have someone to take the piss out of, at least he should be able to find the place this time round! I think Calvin is coming.

Not thought about the food, I probably could do it again. I'll ask Malc for everyone's email address' and see what the score is with the general concencus

You'd better stop winding Malc up, I don't want you restricted to heartbreak ridge all week, I want to get up there myself at some point. ;-)

Oh your good Tommy, he will start plotting soon :-D,

So this year we have the Yorkshire war cry, but we don't know about his straight man Jonny.
Jim the driving instructor and top tater Tommy, any others of note:D

Kingstonandy and his mate Ken
Tommy 270 and his mate
Jim and his mate
Darren and Tom

That's everyone except in my cottage which will consist of csl (alex), Robin, Andy (Tikka 308) Mark and myself and Sandra.

Calvin has never confirmed and paid a deposit and seems to have gone abroad, Stav has also never confirmed or made his intentions known to me either so its news to me if he is thinking of going, so sorry chaps booked out!!


That's the list for this year.

You are very welcome Andy, you know that. Let me know if you can make it over one evening. The mobile dosnt work in the glen so you will need to let me know before I leave for the highlands.

As for Tommy 270 going up heartbreak well I will make sure the oxygen tank is full before you leave :D

19-08-2013, 20:46

I know where you will be stalking and the bugger you will be stalking with, Glen will look after you. You had better be fit because after a day on the ground you are going on the prospect of an 80 mile round trip in the evening could come second to a dram or two :-D:-D

Andy it will take you a while to take off all those price tags on all the new gear you have bought from Bass Pro. Glad to hear you have got your own stalking now.

No worries Andy, you deserve it after the crap you and I have had to deal with in the distant past. Not long now mate and you will be lying in bed listening to the Sika stags whistling in the forest at night adjacent to the cottage, and the Reds early in the morning as they climb heartbreak ridge.

Real stalking...............and with good mates as well :D

Presumably they don't need a bit of frost around the undercarriage to get them in the mood like those Sutherland stags ;)

Just as a heads up to all those coming up for the SD week.

1. Jim (Daft Dog) has asked for all those coming up on the week to contact him via PM regarding the purchase of the food for the week in the lodge.

2. I have also arranged for this year for all those attending to have a day on JAYB's ground. Two each day will be allowed to stalk the area. Thanks to John for this offer, payment is included in your week.

3. There will be the usual sighting in an briefing before we start stalking on the Monday morning. JAYB will be present to over see the sighting in at the lodge where you are all staying. Other guides will be present to help out during the week and will also be stalking themselves. Alex (csl) Andy (Tikka308) and Mark who will be up for the duration of my stay. Along with two other stalkers Darren and Tom and not forgetting Robin :D
I will have my quad bike for extraction and I think Alex is also bringing his up as well.

Any further questions please do not hesitate to PM me or call me.

Safe journey lads and see you up there.

ATB

As per Malc's post. Last year, and in previous years I think, one person has done a group shop for food for the week. Works out quite cheap and good to get everyone round the table to chat about the days stalking.

Last year I think it worked out st about 40 - 50 per person which included a full English, snacks for lunch, and a large evening meal, all tea coffee etc. We left booze out of the shop as everyone had their own preferences.

If those attending are keen, i'm willing to do a large shop for everyone (or just those who want in). Please can you PM me confirming you want to chip in, and let me know any particular dislikes and your mail email address (so I can send out a proposed menu beforehand).

Look forward to hearing from you. And more importantly, looking forward to the week!

Cheers

Jim

See you all soon, safe drive up.

Thank you guys for your kind remarks from both me and Sandra. Good hunting with you all, and glad you enjoyed the crack and the hard stalking.
I have never known it so warm at this time of the year, unbelievable weather with not a hint of frost at all. I told senior guide he should have brought the mankini up with him.

Gentlemen I have not decided YET, as to whether another SD week in the highlands will be arranged for 2014. However it is more than likely something will be arranged.

It is more than likely to be after the stag rut, but I will put it on the site once I have some idea of bookings for Scotland, of which three weeks are already booked by clients.

Thank you
