Thread: How Many stalkers have a high seat in their backgarden?

    How Many stalkers have a high seat in their backgarden?

    Well I have a Panther and it overlooks a large field frequented by Fallow /Roe/Foxes /Rabbits.....!

    Used to have one in a small wood on a steep valley side with 2 possible shots 1 into a bit of managed chestnut & 1 up a track to the entrance from the paddocks, the other was on the lower corner of same wood with a 180 degree view up & down the valley, Roe only, although being in the Tamar valley I was surprised not to see the odd red. I regarded it as my garden as I was less than 100yds from the house.

    I no longer own the farm, however do retain shooting on all surrounding farmland, the seats which were all home grown, have over the years had many new parts!! & served well, they have been resurrected again just around the corner..

    I have also just put up a frame for a raised shooting shelter within my parents garden, as the neighbours have been feeding up the resident foxes & I am fed up replacing their chickens, and need to deal with the culprits.

    hello cervus

    sounds ideal - do you ask your wife to go and pick up the fallen for you ? I'm only jealous. I used to shoot from an apple tree in my dads garden, very cathartic as the trees were hard to establish due to deer damage ES

    I have one, overlooks the ground at the back of the house, good for spotting and watching bats!
    It's the lean-to type, and is propped up against a Willow.

    I install treestands in the backyard. Not for hunting but practicing. It takes a bit of getting used to sitting and standing for a long time on a short platform. And getting into position for a shot. If you can't master it at one foot you will struggle at 20 foot in a tree. It is very relaxing and I can see various birds and possums. Also it gets the dogs used to me being up the tree and they are small enough to have them sit on the platform. I used to use the olive tree but it was copping too much damage from the grippers on the stands, so a nice treated pine allows you to sit away.

    I can shoot from my bedroom window. But I don't think the couple with two young children opposite would be impressed.
