Thread: How far do you travel

    How far do you travel

    As title, I live in South Wales and for all my stalking I have to travel at least 100 miles one way,as the deer in Wales are a bit thin on the ground, it means traveling across the English and Scotish borders,until lately I always used to book a morning and evening stalk,traveling to venue in the early hours far an am stalk have a kip in the car ready for the pm stalk then drive home and to be completely honest by the night I was completely nackered,now I still have a morning and evening stalk but travel up in day time ready for the pm stalk, stay the night in a local hostelry ready for the am stalk,drive home in day light and a lot more refreshed,it adds a bit of extra cost but I really don't see a better way,sorry if this story is a bit boring but I was just wondering how other people done it.

    Same here Landy. Get out of Wales free then hammer down the English roads, evening session, excellent B&B, am and pm, back to the B&B, am and off. Pay to get back into Wales. Excellent value in every respect!

    Half an hour, or twenty miles whichever you prefer as a measurement. Fallow stepping on each others backs when I get there so worth the drive. I have driven, and even flown further for my sport, but it's always worth it.
