Thread: Un-written rules!

  1. #1

    Un-written rules!

    Think it's about time the un-written rules were written.

    What would you guys suggest dos/don't to any new stalker/lamper, shooting friend?
    With all the experienced guys getting annoyed with people stealing shooting opportunities and doing this and that mibi we could put together a few do's and donts on here and people can have a look through them when they start out and not lose shooting opportunities or put others off from giving out opportunities to more new comers.

    If you get invited onto someone else's ground.... don't turn up with a mate
    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"

    If in doubt, don't shoot

    Every time, just before you pull the trigger, you must ask yourself......."Could this be my last ever shot"? if there is any doubt, then there is no doubt - Don't shoot!!!

    Remember all the help and advice you received to get to the level you are..... Then be prepared to pass the same amount (or more!) on to others after you.

    If stalking is offerd buy a neighbour dont bite the hand that feeds you. Only when the person who your with turns up the opportunity then ask if they would mind if you then took it.

    If you haven't been asked to shoot something don't!
    If you've been asked to shoot a few bunnies leave the hares and foxes alone it might not be appreciated, you might consider you are doing them a favour, you might not be!!!!!

    Communicate what you are doing and what you would like to do with the land owner/farmer. Don't just do things. Manners cost nothing but mean everything !

    DO NOT SLAM THE CAR DOOR. Not when lamping, not when you arrive at your mates stalking ground and do not set the farmers dogs barking when you turn up in his yard. Slamming a car door will tell everyone you meet that you are a clueless novice.
    If you are driven to a gate don't expect the driver to get out and open it, that's what passengers/assistants are for. Same again, open and close it quietly.
    Don't squeeze the trigger on someone else's say so. Weigh up the shot and determine in your own mind that it is safe.
    Don't just look for deer, fox, bunnies etc' , look around you, notice if all the sheep are the right way up, or escaped in to the crops. Are the cows behaving in a strange fashion , are they bunched up and it wasn't you that spooked them. A countryman will do more than hunt when he goes out.

    For a novice, there's no such thing as a stupid question, if in doubt ask!

    For a dyed in the wool old cermudgeonly hunter, there should also be no such thing as a daft / silly question either!!!!
