    Gralloching

    i havent been stalking very long and have only managed two deer ( from 2 shots ) so far, this morning got me the second. Even though it was only a fallow prickett i found that handling a deer alone requires some practise and experience. i am on the lookout for a dvd that will take me through the entire process and would like to know what you reccommend. i searched some similar topics but want to know if there have been any new releases etc that i should consider. If anyone has a copy that they dont use any more i would happily buy it from them.

    thanks
    keith

    I believe the BDS do a video/DVD of this.

    Have you tried a suspended Gralloch with the use of a tree or any other structure you can get a Deer off the ground with?

    After shooting only Roe for a couple of years, then shooting a Red.....That was a struggle to say the least!!

    TJ
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    a friend took me out for reds this time last year and we only seen a couple of hinds, at that point i decided that i would wait until november to stalk again for reds as there was no way i could of handled one with the amount of experience i have.

    I suspended the fallow from my high seat which made it a little easier but i guess practise will make perfect. my normal stalking partner is pretty much at the same level as myself so we are learning as we go.

    well done on your Pricket. "The stalkers guide to gralloching & Post-mortem inspection of Deer " might be of use to you Google search "Donington Deer Management"

    A mate I shoot with in Ireland has a dvd out now which includes gralloching. It's been reveiwed by the shooting papers who all thought it was good. It's by David Dunne who's the chairman of the Irish Wild Deer Association. I've seen him gralloching a deer and it's amazing - he's even taught his young un to do it. i'll try and locate the video so you can see. When he replies to my txt i'll let you know the name of the dvd and where you can get it - update, if you email him on davehunter69@yahoo.com he says he'll send one out direct to you
