Thread: Turning 44.

  1. #1

    Turning 44.

    Thanks to the kindness of an SD member, I spent my 44th birthday stalking in Somerset yesterday. We saw plenty of deer, but only shot the one doe; it will live in my memory for a long time as it involved a very long and slow crawl across a field of rape, stopping every few yards until we got into position, and then waiting for the doe to stand up and present a broadside shot. It was a great way to celebrate my birthday, although the ribs are aching a bit to today! Several members of this site have invited me to stalk with them on their ground since I joined in 2009, and I've never failed to be amazed by their knowledge, generosity and patience; I haven't got the time to stalk as much as I'd like, but I have learnt a lot through time spent in their company.

    And trying to keep up with an obviously much much younger wife can't help either

    Cheers, lads. Think my worry lines and thinning hair might be due to the game shoot I try to, Geordie? I will pass on your kind comments to Liz....through gritted teeth!
