    Late intro

    I have been stalking on a farm in the same village I live in north of Bristol for the past year.
    I started off with an air rifle some 6 years ago and worked my way up from air rifle to FAC for FAC air and 22LR.
    There were some foxes near to me and I was getting fed up with stalking them down to 50 yards with a 22 I took a look at a centrefire,
    I decided to go for a deer gun to save on training course costs rather than a 222 then maybe later to a 243.
    I have shot 8 deer this year just gone, 5 Roe and one Muntjac and two Fallow, there are still quite a few around from the tracks in the fields.
    I have seen 12 Fallow on the one bit of the farm which has them. Escapees from the Berkley or Hill estates perhaps?
    I use the Severnside range for practise as the farmer regards Sunday as his day of rest.
    Just starting with reloading, still getting all the bits together over Christmas.
    I tend to lurk more than I post, reading posts of others for info and tips.
    What has surprised me is the money side of stalking, people say I'm lucky to have it for nought, but I am de facto the pest controller on the farm with the deer being the bonus.
