    how long can you go without stalking, it's been nearly 2 weeks for me and my fingers are trembling...come on weekend, COME ON!!!

    From June 2011 to Feb 2012 I did not shoot a deer but I was stalking nearly every week.

    Now I have stalking when ever I want it I hardly ever shoot, funny how it works.

    So far, I've managed 35 years.

    I stalk regurlarly but there is nothing to shoot. unless i go out at night or have the HMR with me. Then they all come walking up to me to wave.

    Can I have a special dispensation to shoot a Muntie at 100 yards with a .22 air rifle using night vision?
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Ditto. Go out with an air rifle and I see no rabbits but plenty of larger quarry. Go out with the 22-250 and I only see rabbits. Starting to think they have bugged my cabinet.

    I didn't touch the rifle from 1st of sept until after feb 20th. Seem to prefer wildfowling over shooting does in winter. I think you have to be more switched on for stalking. Walk carefully/glass regularly ect compared to just sitting on a sea wall.

    They're completely different forms of hunting. Wildfowling is essentially ambushing, a high proportion of the skill is working out out where you should be and when (the bit I can't work out in fact) whereas in deerstalking, there's more opportunity to go and actively find your quarry, like when you're creeping around the woods after woodcock (the bit I have worked out).

    Last stalk was beginning of Feb, before that was November both unsuccessful. Hoping for lady luck to put me onto a nice Roe doe or maybe a fallow this weekend.
    Foxes are my main bag and rabbits when the mood takes me, same with pigeons I have to be in the right frame of mind for them.
