I'm in the market for a new rifle.
I'd be interested in hearing about pro's and cons on the following choices:
a) Sako 85
b) Sauer 404
c) Blaser R8 pro success
Mainly used for deer but might take it out after the occasional fox.
There are not many roe around the part of East Sussex where I live but they appear to be getting a foothold. Plenty of Fallow to compete with them for food must be one reason why they are not more widely established.
I am lucky enough to get the few that do manage to hold their own...
All, I'm looking to get a new 308 rifle. Mainly used for high seat and maybe a little woodland work. What's the most accurate factory rifle out there in your varied experience? Not a reloader so looking for something that groups well with a variety of factory ammunition?
Has anyone else seen similar characteristics to the following in Fallow around Sussex? A number of the bucks have one fully formed (palmated) antler and one spike on the opposite side. They are not injured so I am thinking its a genetic trait. Some pics to illustrate what I mean.
Through the winter there have been a number of Roe making appearances in the garden. They've been coming in groups of 4-5. They seem quite comfortable and are even happy to come right up to the house as these 2 did...
Hello all and Happy New Year.
I'm new to deer stalking and looking to learn as much as I can. I've done my DSC1 as I thought it would be a good move. I'd like to get the DSC2 done this year. Also, looking to get as much practical experience as I can so any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
