    Hi All,

    I'll start by saying that this isn't for any FAO reason or as someone to sign me off as safe, I already have my FAC, and I apologise for posting this in two forums, I realised after posting it that other similar requests were posted in here instead of classifieds, and I don't think it is possible to move a thread?

    I am hoping one of you generous SD members would be willing to let me tag along with you either rabbiting/stalking/foxing etc. not necessarily to do any shooting but just wanting to learn a bit, get an idea of techniques, and generally talk to someone with more experience. I live in Doncaster so ideally I am looking for someone who lives within an hour or so of here.

    In exchange the first round would be on me!

    Cheers,

    Ryan

    Hi Ryan, can't help in your request above but I have been fortunate enough to meet a few people through foxing/stalking the I feel have taken me under their wing.It is just another important part in gaining experience in the wonderful word of field sport and I hope the guys that can,will help.
    good luck

    Hi Dave,

    I agree it is a great community, I have had a lot of help and great advice from people on here through my previous posts and questions, hopefully I'll get a chance to learn a little more from them in person!

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Hang on.....

    Am I reading this right? A Yorkshire man offering to get the 1st round in?

    Ryan...What's the catch???

    (Shame I'm the wrong end of the country to help!)

    Haha if you look closely I started with the catch - you need you put up with me following around asking questions for a bit first!

    Gentle nudge for this thread in the hopes that the Yorkshire shooters haven't noticed it yet, and not just that there aren't any members in my area!

    Last bump with crossed fingers!

    I'm happy to travel in the general Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Humberside, Manchester area.

    Keep bumping mate - there'll be someone. I'd happily take you out with me but Sussex/Oxfordshire is my patch and probably a bit of a trek for you.

    Good luck!

    Send me a pm with your number and I'm sure I can sort out a night's foxing in Derbyshire once the ground dries up.Atb Chris
