    Do you have plans to come to the CLA this year, it would really good to see there?

    Thanks very much for that Norman. You have done a bit I see, are you sure your'e not Richard Hannay? It's really great to have such an experienced chap hosting the Vet and Deer Welfare sections.

    Just a quick message to the members of the site. Don't mess with Morena or you are likely to end up with a horses head in your fridge! Its a long but very funny story.

    Great stuff Norman. I see you worked at Glen Lyon, is that the estate near Aberfeldy? If so can I ask when this was, as a friend of mine is the keeper there. He moved from near Rosehall to Glen Lyon about 8 years ago.

    Cheers

    Hi Skamalc,
    Worked on the Wills Estate up near Killin. Many moons ago. Stags very visible until they checked their calendar. Happy memories of looking up the mountain towards Loch Rannoch and seeing this absolute forest of antlers. Days later they had legged it. Have hazy memories of a distillery near ??Aberfeldy.

    Hi Malc,
    The stalker was Jock Wilson. We kept in contact for years and then all of a sudden got a letter from his son to say dad been up on the hind cull had just come off the hill and suffered a fatal heart attack. Sadly missed as he was not a gentleman. Hard b*****

    I admire your background. It just proves, if you want it, go get it. It`s there if you put your mind to it.
