    Looking to hunt in England/UK

    I will be studying abroad in the UK at St.Mary's University in Twickenham, just outside of London. I will be studying this coming Spring semester from late January to late May. Growing up in the the Midwestern United States, hunting has been a big part of my life and I have always dreamed of taking animals all over the world.
    Being a student, I do not have a large budget that would afford me the opportunity to go on luxurious hunts likes the ones you see on TV. Deer is my preferred form of hunting but any opportunity to go out hunting for game of any kind would be greatly appreciated. I have nearly a decade of hunting experience with rifles and shotguns. Even the opportunity to go along with another hunter would be an experience I would cherish for a lifetime. If you have any opportunities available or information of other hunting opportunities this would be of great interest to me.
    I know this may be a strange request but I am really interested in going out hunting. I would be more than willing to help someone out with whatever tasks they may need done in return for an outdoor experience. If someone was gracious enough to take me hunting or let me hunt with them I would be more than happy to give you the entire animal if you so chose, or, I could donate the meat to a local charity or soup kitchen (if that is an acceptable custom in the UK).

    Thank you for your time.

    Hi Andrew,
    It is normal to do an intro first but I suppose if you are still relative young the enthusiasm of youth rules your head.
    I am sure a muntjac stalk would be not too expensive for you = 38 beers for a days stalking if you drank Guinness.
    I could give you a contact near Stansted airport if you wanted that.
    I am in Bavaria, Germany so that"s too far for you.

    Andrew, I am moving home at the moment so I cant offer anything but if I get settled as anticipated, I'll contact you again. I should by then have some land and if nothing else, maybe a days pigeon shooting would be a change from the 'rigours' of student life. Welcome to the other side of the pond !

    Check your PMs. I have sent you a primer on UK vs US stalking, just to help you translate and make sense of it all.

    Hi there Andrew,

    I live down in Sussex so not a million miles away, I should be able to offer you some Fallow deer stalking in January and possibly a days driven pheasant shooting. PM me and we'll try and sort something out.

    Andrew, If you are interested you can join me for some fallow stalking at my woods in Kent. About 40 mins by train from London to Ashford. Let me know by PM.
