    New member from Clitheroe in Lancashire

    Hello there just a quick introduction,

    I'm Gareth, i'm 36 and live in Clitheroe in Lancashire, i've had my FAC for just over 4 years now. I started off with a .223 rifle shooting foxes for a farmer I know and had permision for a .17HMR which I never bought. About 18months ago I really started to take an interest in starting deer stalking, I put in for a variation for a .25-06 to be used for fox and deer and a .22Rimfire for rabbits and bought both rifles immediately. My .25-06 is a Tikka T3 Stainless Varmint with a shortned 20" barrel and McMillan stock and my .22Lr is an Anschutz 1417-U2 Thumbhole.

    I have 4 land permissions in my local area, 3 I can shoot anything I like rabbits,fox,deer although sadly deer very rarely are found on these farms, the 4th farm I can only shoot fox and sadly there are a good number of Sika that i'm not able to touch.

    I did my DSC1 course around 18moths ago, I passed 3 sections and have 2 resits to do which I havent done yet, I passed the Safety,Shooting and meat hygiene sections but didn't have enough deer specific knowledge to pass the other 2 sections. I'm not just waiting for another course near by so I can complete those.

    I currently go out once/twice a week shooting rabbits/fox but I would really love to get into deer stalking but as I say its not really possible on my land permissions.

    I'm hoping to find on this site more info on getting into stalking and maybe come across the oppotunities to go.

    Kind Regards

    Gareth
