    Want 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.

    I know that Wisconsin have a campus at Dalkeith Palace (near Edinburgh).

    If you can get yourself up here I can take you out looking for pheasants (season finishes at the end January).

    I think that might be a little tight because I will be arriving the last week in January and need to get settled in and all. Thank you very much for your gracious offer though.

    I can take you out, roe stalking, if you fancy to tag along, but the land rules doesn't allow you to hunt. Give us a shout when you're in UK and we going from there.
    Also i'm not far from Twickenham.

    What are you studying? As an ex Simmie it's a lovely part of London. I loved my undergraduate degree there.

    There will probably be someone on here that would be willing to offer something in exchange for something you could offer back home.

    Shootgun, thanks for the offer will do!
    Joed- My major is business with a finance emphasis
    Jono- Never play rugby before but I played American football and was big into wrestling in high school. I am a relatively big dude (6'5" 220lb) so i think I would be able to fit right in.
    JTO - I have multiple hunting lands available for use as well as thousands of acres open to public hunting. I would be more than happy to take anyone out sometime if they happen to be in Wisconsin at some point.
