Thread: Stuck between a rock and a hard place!!!

    Stuck between a rock and a hard place!!!

    Well here's my problem I am young eager to get going but heads pickled where to start...

    I have been gratefully being going along with an experienced stalker for about 8 years,but recently lost touch with me coming of age to go off and find a job.. So now despretly tring to get back into the thing I love.. So where do I start? I need my FAC but how do obtain land because I really don't think any local farmer is going to let what look like a total novic come onthere land and use it for there first FAC ( i may be wrong and I intend to ask) I do have a letter from a member of SD saying I am a customer of his ( very appreciated) is this and another future booked stalks enuf to gain FAC? I really just want to get out there but I ain't no millionaire where I can pay for stalks every week ( I wish I could)

    A point in any direction would be greatfully appreciated or even how you guys started as I dont come from a family where hunting is a chosen sport.it's just what I have chosen and love.

    If your 1st aim is to get your FAC then all you need is a farmer prepared to let you list his ground. Beyond that I think as a novice you would be aswell seeking out a gun club/range and using that to get your FAC but also learn what you can. You also are likely to need a mentor befoer your local constabulary will let you out with a rifle. So again I suspect the club is the way to go.

    Didn't mean to come across as only wanting my FAC. I was intending my dsc level 1 but looking like jan before I will be able to attend that.good idea about the gun club/range something I will look into tomorrow try find a few and give them a call.

    I think you need to change your profile to Glasgow and you may find the offers of a day out easier? Ayrshire is a wee bit out the way?
