    I'm inbound for the Kingdom on Friday.

    Hunting with a friend I made on this site and then I will be holed up at the Abbey Arms hotel in New Abbey, Scotland from the 13th to the 17th. Doing a mini UK safari. The evening of the 13th, 15th, 16th would be a good time to meet up. Any of you guys that want to meet and talk about hunting over here or there, feel free to drop by. If you want info on hunting the US, bring your lap top. I would be thrilled to help you guys get over here and enjoy a hunt. I'm helping a few of you already, one hunter to another. If interested ask for Michael from Oregon. No real late nights, 11 or 12 tops. My first time to the UK. Cheers!

    If you've not been to the UK before & you get the chance, visit Drumlanrig Castle (more of a Palace really); it's about 45 mins from New Abbey.

    I'm way down south otherwise I'd take you up on that!

    Hope you enjoy your trip!
    If you're shooting badly, you need a new gun. If you're shooting well then you deserve a new gun.

    Michael, had I had far greater notice I would have been up to buy you a scotch egg.


    Members if you are a commuting distance then take the oppertunity, Michael has
    been a gent with the advice for my future US hunting trips.

    You should have a cracking time. Make sure you get a "full fry up" each morning - if there is one thing the UK does better than the rest of the world, it's breakfast.

    Savor the entire experience - stalking in the UK is much more hush hush than we are used to in the states, but most of the lads really know their stuff. While SW Scotland is surely beautiful, if you get up to the Highlands you will become addicted for life. If not this trip, make plans for another trip back and go north.

    Shame we can't cross paths, but brother and I are making our return to the Highlands trip about a week after your trip is over. Can honestly say that the I am extremely excited. Back for a week with Malc and Mark for the stags, and a couple days with Frank prior to either try to get in some wild fowling or a salmon, whichever works out.

    Have a good time. Make sure and try both proper haggis and a haggis supper with Irn Bru while you're in Scotland.

    Here's one from my last trip home!Click image for larger version.
