  1. Wanted: Wanted - Roe, Muntjac - Surrey/ Hampshire area

    After 12 years, a divorce (the landowner, not me..) means I will loose the main piece of ground I current have and I am looking for lease opportunities in and around the Surrey/ Hampshire border area (within 30-40 minutes of Hindhead) for Roe (happy to control Vermin etc) I have never had to...
  2. Oceania Defence SLS 3D Laser printed Moderators - .30cal 'Alpine Hunter' impressions

    I own a few moderators including one of the Original Quicksilver Titanium mods in .223 from when they were still being licensed in the UK and for the most part they all do a pretty reasonable job in terms of sound reduction. I've never been super happy with what any of them do for rifle balance...
  3. New Zealand for Bull Tahr and Chamois, Feb 2017, Solo

    Though I've been stalking (or maybe I should say 'hunting' since its in NZ ? :) ) for Fallow on the North Island (married to a Kiwi and we are lucky get over there fairly regularly) this will be my first hunt on the South Island and I thought I'd write it up here as I go with a review of my...
  4. New Woods rifle - suggest something interesting!

    About 50% of my stalking during the summer is woodland Roe (walked and I'd like something a bit handier than my moderated 24" Cooper Arms (260 Rem). Ideally 20" or less, lightweight (it will travel with me to NZ for 10 days hiking/stalking in January) and will occasionally get used for larger...
  5. The old 'Calibre vs Chambering' debate :)

    Put in for a variation for a 7.62/.308 recently which was granted quickly enough (open ticket, this is a woodland gun for Roe/ Fallow and use abroad alongside). I had expected it to come back '.308 WIN' (all my other variations have cartridge designation specified), but actually both rifle and...
  6. Dropped my damn rifle :(

    Slipped off my shoulder while glassing a buck last night. Off all the places I could have been, I was standing on a concrete forecourt... Rifle went backwards, but first and then over with the end of the S&B PM2 taking the full force of the impact .. Rifle undamaged but end of scope flattened...
  7. Changing a barrel

    Question: I want to switch the 1:12 .223 barrel I have for a 1:9. The barrel I have has no markings or serial number on it. If that barrel is irretrievably destroyed (angle grinder to the chamber, cut up etc) before I chamber its replacement then has the law been broken? Home office guidance...
  8. Lost a buck this morning

    Sooner or later it was going to happen; so used to seeing the drop on the spot or finding within 50 yrds. Something of a mystery and aside from the primary concern being the welfare of the animal I'd like to have found the thing to know exactly what the shot was and why it ran as it did. I...
  9. Time for a custom Rifle - 375 H&H

    Having made it out the other side of a unexpected event at the beginning of the year (streptococcal peritonitis - several weeks in Intensive care and a vertical 12" abdominal scar that has left my international bikini modeling career in tatters - as the practice nurse said, 'a great way to...
  10. Illuminated or not Z6

    I've got a 3-12x50IL PA PM2, p3 reticule on my stalking rifle at the moment which I like a lot. I had hoped to acquire another PM2 in the same format to replace the scope I have on my AR (mainly used for civillian service rifle and a few charlies) is a Nikon M223 which I bought from the USA...
  11. Ticks & Ked levels

    My take is that there has been a noticable increase this year in the number of ticks we've seen on the animals. One large buck I shot a couple of weeks ago had his hind quarters covered in the little beasts. Obviously usual warnings re. Lymes apply (anyone know of a spray product that could be...
  12. Summer evening rewward

    The first truly great evening of summer for me last night. Temperature, wind right.. got away from the office in time and arrived relaxed at one of my blocks in East Hampshire relaxed and focused. Rewarded with a couple of bucks. A very beaten spiker early on in the evening and then this guy at...
  13. Poll - How frequently/ what stalking do you do?

    Reading a post here yesterday that suggested that many members here were hobby stalkers that went out on guided stalks a few (perhaps 3 or 4) times per year - what do you do?
