I was recently invited by a friend to take his daughter’s place on a two day stalking trip to Rick Iwaniszewski’s ground in Warwickshire. As Rick is an accredited witness I decided to take the plunge and register for DSC2, Rick kindly agreeing to witness my stalks. This turned out to be the best move I could have made; I lost count of the number of roe I saw over three outings and managed to shoot three plus a muntjac and a fox. The whole affair was much less stressful than I had imagined, and Rick managed to put me through my paces without my feeling much pressure and I learned a great deal from him. To put it mildly I am very pleased to have managed to complete my profile in just two days (admittedly close to the rut!) and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rick’s services to anyone else thinking of trying for DSC2 or simply looking for some exciting stalking in a beautiful agricultural setting.
