  1. What questions to ask when buying stalking

    Thanks for everyone's feedback, and I particularly enjoyed some of the more 'tongue in cheek' ones :lol: Perhaps, Erik's final comment sums up the problem, as discussed on other posts, that there is no simple way to identify 'Professional Guides/Stalkers'. In many professions there are -...
  2. What questions to ask when buying stalking

    Hi everyone, Following from another thread about the typical costs for Roebuck stalking, I thought it would be really useful to know what questions the more experienced out there ask when looking at choosing a potential Stalker/Guide. So, without wishing to limit anyones thinking, what do you...
  3. Roe Buck Stalking general cost enquiry

    Good points in here, as a newbie I have fallen foul of buying 'stalking' from a recreational/hobbyist. He is a lovely guy and when on his own 'happy to go for a walk' and if he had the opportunity take a shot he would. I am also happy to walk, but not at £60 an outting and no deer, or sign of...

  5. Land Reform (Scotland) Bill 2015 - Sporting Rates

    Hi Deer Stalker, At the moment I'm not sure that anyone knows, the legislation that came in to force on the 1st April 2017 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/asp/2016/18/part/6/enacted talks about the process but as yet no valuations have been completed. If you currently has a Lease then you should...
  6. My Two Chamberings For Anything Deer Related In The UK!

    Hi jamross65, Thanks for this, as a newbie ie this is very interesting reading - and as you say the almost infinite combination of calibres and ammunition make it a terrifying environment. I opted for .308 Mauser M12 Extreme as the main rifle (as I have the regular opportunity to go to Sweden...
  7. Did I miss something?

    Another option is (accepting the comments about saving himself a job etc) that he is no longer an AGHE and now is only a butcher. This would mean, from my reading of the reg's that he cannot accept it 'in-fur' but as with all regulations they are designed to make lawyers money and not be easy...
  8. Auto feeder

    Hi J111, speaking with some friends in Sweden, who are overrun with Boar, they use the auto feeders with peas - they say the noise of them being thrown out will start to attract the Boar as they'll associate the noise with food. On the basis that they have so many (they syndicate is out...
  9. Wanted: Syndicate place - Glos / Wilts borders

    Hi everyone, I was in a wonderful position, as a relative newcomer to stalking a friend had a couple of pieces of ground over which there were Muntjac, Roe and a large herd of Fallow to be found. Then, and without a 'by your leave' he decides to get a job at the other end of the country and...
  10. non toxic bullets

    H Deerstalker, I get them from R J Blackwall at Charlbury, near Oxford as it is on my weekly commute home. So, not sure how generally available they are as I haven't had to look. Also, for me a couple of quid a round isn't a major issue as I'm only pulling the trigger a few times a month on...
  11. non toxic bullets

    £2ea, and yes a lovely part of the world. Trull is a nice shoot - never been on a driven day but done the charity clay day there. My beating was/is at Charlton Park with some nearer to home on Long Newnton.
  12. non toxic bullets

    Hi, my first post on here so please be gentle with me if you disagree :)! I'm using the RWS HIT in 308 for my Mauser M12 and getting 1inch groups at 100m from sticks. Interesting thread title, I thought part of the purpose was to be very 'toxic' to the target cull animal!!!
  13. Am I being nieve?

    Hi everyone, my first post, but whilst new to stalking have been shooting for many years and would never shoot on land without written permission. As 'I, Farticus' implied armed trespass is not somewhere you want to be! i know it can be seen as overly official, but I have been the wrong end of...
