  1. If you had to nominate one thing...?

    One thing For me it's my yellow 'hippo bucket' from Travis Perkins. No more worrying about leaving a mess in the back of the car. The one I've got will take a fallow and roe - for when I get really lucky. A
  2. Ticks

    Hi Malcolm Thanks for your reply. But do you think the ticks are increasing in number in the areas you go to regularly? The other thing I forgot to mention in my original post, is that whilst the Sika Stags were covered in ticks, they were in very good health, good fat coverage...
  3. Ticks

    I keep reading horror stories about the rising tick numbers and that we're all going to fall over from Lyme disease an at any moment. I haven't noticed any increase in tick numbers on the bucks I've shot here in Gloucestershire, infact, they always seem to be remarkably clean, with just the...
  4. Fences killing capercaille

    I recently read an article about deer fences being removed in parts of Scotland, because of the 'concern they were killing capercaille'. I assume the birds were dying because they couldn't see it and they flew into it, breaking bones etc. Surely, a bit of initiative could have been used and...
  5. An 890 yard shot....!

    You've got to see this clip. I'm not sure what sort of bench rest/Mad Max contraption these guys are taking their shots from. I thought at least some of the art of stalking is to get as close as you can to your animals. Yes these guys can hit the deer at these rediculous distances but...
  6. high seat

    Phil I recently used a high seat supplied by Clive Wood at Countryplan. It had lots of adjustable bits - rifle, back rest etc... Don't know how much they cost, but his number is 07970 097523.
  7. Venison Carbonnade

    I'm not saying that this one is good enough to save the Editors marriage - but it tastes bloody good, even when I cook it! Ingredients: 2lb venison meat cut from the shoulder 4 tblsp olive oil One onion One crushed clove of garlic 4oz mushrooms 3 rashers of bacon Bouquet garni (parsley...
  8. Nothing to do with stalking but if you've got kids...

    Thomas the Tank Engine A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old son playing with his new electric train in the living room. She heard the train stop and her son saying, "All of you b*****ds who want off, get the f**k off now, cause we're in a hurry! And all...
  9. Smaller calibres

    Calibre debate I agree with everything that Jason has said. And just where are these centrefire owners going to shoot and doesn't everyone who wants to stalk buy a stalking rifle - usually a .243 or above? I don't know of anyone with a smaller calibre who wants to stalk, but I might have...
  10. Gut hooks

    I'm trying to talk a friend out of going for a knife with a gut hook. Please help as he's not convinced that they're at best a waste of time. If a couple of other stalkers could reply soon, I may just be able to save him a few quid.
  11. A real mess

    Tossers These guys aren't hunters. If I were moderatoring this site, I'd remove this clip as I wouldn't want to be in any way associated with this poor excuse for sport.
