    Hello, i live with my wife in a small village in north west Lancashire.Many years ago i was a shepherd in the highlands of Scotland,i lived in a wee house up in the hills.The nearest dwelling was the head keepers about half a mile away.One evening i was invited round to the keepers for a meal,while i was there he asked me if i had ever fired a rifle,i said no just shotguns,so we went out behind his house wher there was a grassy mound with a cutout of a stag in front,the keeper showed me how to hold the gun and aim.I fired off a round at the target and a fox darted out of the long grass,i swung through and fired,the fox dropped stone dead to my amazement.The head keeper said that was brilliant and asked if i had ever thought of being a stalker,and 3 months later i left shepherding and became a professional stalker/keeper.I spent many happy years on the hill but due to an injury i gave it up and became a gardener down in Lancashire.
