    hi new to site

    Hi i'm Jonathon . Been trying to get on to forum for a while and now on. a bit about myself. been a keen clay and game shot for about 18 years , shoot a lot of game fairs but getting a bit pricey! had mainly been doing vermin control [rabbits and foxes] with a gamekeeper and friend using an estate rifle. 2 kids under 3 have slowed the clay and game shooting down so thought a change of hours would help! so put in for a fac in august last year and was granted one in march for deer stalking and fox control. went for a T3 varmint in stainless, 243, s+b 8x56, jet z moderator, single set trigger, harris bi pod. went for this set up because my friend has a sako 75 which i have shot and liked but this was slightly cheaper. live in north herefordshire. have found a lot of useful subjects on this forum. my wife is now a computer widow as well as a shooting one!!!!

    i know it well such a lovely village with that beautifull long black and white property i admire every time i pass through , couple of tight bits but that the countryside for you
    i also hav heard of a sighting of muntjac just outside of presteigne but never had it confirmed
    i hav shot a bit around your area lamping and stalking from radnor forest up through kinnerton and just up the road from you by ammestrey (yatton to be precise ) got some roe there and few fallow too
    who do you use for all your shooting supplies? as there are not many around those neck of the woods
