Thread: Hi All from North Wales Coast

  1. #1

    Hi All from North Wales Coast

    Hello all, just a brief introduction from myself.

    45, bald, been shooting since I was 9 with air rifles with brief forays into shotguns and firearms due to my father having a shotgun and me being a member of the air cadets. after a spell of not shooting I finally got my backside into gear and got my FAC last year and been trying to put a dent in the local rabbit population. been using air rifles only up to that point.

    I'm interested in moving up from rabbits to venison and goat, so will be on the lookout for any hints and tips.

    I'm a member of the local range and have been for the last 5 years.

    I enjoy shooting and being outdoors, been bushcrafting ever since I watched Eddie McGee on 'telly, long before the term bushcraft was copywrited :-)

    So, please forgive any daft or really stupid questions I may ask, not here to offend, only to learn.

    Ah, further north than me. Must be a few deer around your way?

    Hi VSS, can't walk in the woods behind Abergele without falling over deer and badgers! I've been trying to keep the rabbit population down at a couple of places, and I've been asked if I can do anything about foxes too, the problem being that I can't shoot them with .17hmr or .22lr according to the FEO. So I've been thinking of something heavier to go after fox, deer and goat

    You could just shoo the deer down this way...
    I'd invite you over to have a crack at them from time to time
