    Donegal tomorrow.

    Hi all. Off to Donegal tomorrow for a go at those BIG REDS. Been a long time in the pipeline this one due to holdups in paperwork. Was meaning to go during Nov08! Will post pictures of success, if any had, on return.

    Best of luck. The weather should be great over the next couple of days.

    I hope to be stalking on the Tyrone - Donegal border on Saturday morning.

    the one thing i find with stalking , is you don't need success to make it special
    take plenty of pics if you can as the trophy is the hunt, the beast is just an extra
    hav a good trip and hopefully a very sucessful one , look forward to the pics with or with out a grassed one but hope luck is on your side
