Thread: hi to all fellow stalkers

    hi to all fellow stalkers

    hi. ive only been stalking for a few years (unless we include rabbits) but love to be out in the woods stalking and observing deer. its taken me several years to get the kit i have got and its not top notch but i want to encourage those who may be put off when looking at the prices of all the top notch kit thinking they need it at the start. sure i would love a brand new rifle with a zeiss or schmit scope and binos to match. but as long as your rifle is accurate and reliable and above all we are personally good enough then isnt it about stalking and deer rather than price tags

    pj1, Welcome to the site.
    When I started, the land owner said "You are welcome to sort the deer, but i want them sorted soon." I had little money at the time and a young family, but managed to buy a second hand BSA CF2 and forty rounds of amunition. Years later money and a SAKO came my way, which I treasure. However, an opportunity to buy another
    CF2 Stutzen a few years back came along and that is the rifle that is most often taken from the cabinet.

    thanks for the welcome. i never thought as a teenager with an air rifle that i would be stalking. but lots of saving 2pound coins and 50ps and a good amount of reading , practice and asking around i have finally found myself stalking. im even at the point of only wanting to stalk. forget fishing and foxing its deer all the way

    a man after my own heart. i have always wanted a stutzen and saw a bsa in 243 next to the 308 half stock i hope to buy. if i didnt want a bit more clout it would have been the stutzen all the way. who knows i will have the space on my ticket for a 243 for the next 4 years so i might just persuade my self i need one before renewal
