    Novice looking for deer stalking opportunities in angus/fife & perthshire

    Hello.

    Just a general thread really and seeking some advice on beginning deer stalking. I currently like in Angus, Scotland and I wanted to know if there is anyone out there in this area who can recommend a reputable stalker/company ect who will take out a novice such as myself on a guided stalk. Initially I would like to try it out before committing myself to this noble sport. Long term plans would obviously to gain sufficient skill and experience to enable me to become competent,safe and gain the DSC 1 which seems to be the norm. Further long term ambitions would be to gain a FAC and hopefully find or join a syndicate in my area. I have plenty of firearms experience from my time in the military however I have never hunted or stalked any quarry before.

    If anyone in Deer Stalking Directory land to advise in anyway then that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Depends how deep ypur pockets are!!!!!!! Quite a few mentor quality stalkers round you. Red or roe, hill or wood, fitness level, rifle owned or estate rifle, all questions you could answer that will aid those offering assistance, Jim pm sent

    Well done Howard 100% the wright approach im sure some one up there will help you out . Its just a shame more newcomers don't take your attitude towards stalking to many people just go and get a FAC and think they are stalkers not knowing about there quarry or showing respect for it. There is a lot more to it than just pulling the trigger.

    Never thought about your location until now but a good friend of mine up your way is on a large estate with both red and roe and will take out paying guests for the estate. Not sure of prices but if its just a stalk and not medal bucks I don't think it will be expensive. What I will say is that he is very experienced and also still manages a few areas in Fife as well where some incredible roe come off.

    He is on this site under michie65.55, drop him a pm and say it was info from me that caused you to enquire.
