    Fallow & Muntjac Cull weekend (North London) - March 8th - 10th 2013

    Hi Folks,

    Following the success of last year’s event, we are looking at offering a further weekend of good craic & shooting.

    As before, we have arranged the use of a hunt club, its facilities & grounds for up to 12 stalkers to join in a collaborative cull, first come first served, for the sort of weekend that gets folk coming back for more! We have selected a shoot in early March so as not to co-incide with either the pheasant season or roost shooting. Hopefully this will make attending a bit easier for some who work 'in the trade'!



    The club now has some 15,000 acres of grounds in Hertfordshire, covered by 50+ high-seats. Species are primarily Fallow and Muntjac. You are assisting in providing a major part of the 300 deer, yearly cull, on grounds which are not otherwise extensively shot.

    Cost: Held at 400 per person, to include range zero session, gralloching team/coaching, four outings, sleeping bag accommodation, all cull deer (no limit on numbers), breakfasts and evening meals.

    A deposit of 100 will secure your place, with the balance being due by the 27th January 2013. I will hold deposits and deal with all the event organization.

    Here's the detail:

    Join AM Friday 8th - Leave Sunday 10th March after morning shoot.
    Prove zero from high seat - either shoot a min 4" group on the target, or you will not be allowed to shoot.
    4x outings, unaccompanied hunting, conducted from high seats only. 15,00+ acres & 50+ high-seats makes for quite some opportunities.
    Shooting Fri eve, Sat morning & eve, Sunday morning - wash up and leave late Sunday morning.



    Organization

    • Hunt Club owner's word is law, & his decision on procedure etc is final!
    • You require a current, deer conditioned FAC and insurance (BASC etc) as well as a UK Deer legal rifle (.240 or larger).
    • All deer to be chest shot, unlimited cull Bucks or Does, (Fallow or Muntjac) included in cost.
    • Gralloching team will deal with the animals back at the club. Best practice coaching by DSC2 AWs available if required.
    • Unsaleable venison will be charged to the shooter at dealer rates. To ensure shooting is conducted accurately & within your abilities, wounded / lost animals charged at 200. Naturally, no second animals to be shot unless you are certain that your first hit was both accurate and fatal.
    • Limited sleeping bag accommodation is available on-site, as well as there being a local Travelodge / Days inn (5 mins drive). Booking early will give good value, especially as the family rooms can be shared between up to four!
    • This is a cull hunt - however, it is possible that you may see a trophy beast. Costs of the trophies will be confirmed shortly. There is also the chance for trophy CWD for those wishing to hunt for them - please advise me if you would like the opportunity.



    If you would like to attend - please post your name on this thread & send me a PM, including your email address & full contact details. On receipt of deposits, I will then update a list of those with confirmed places!

    Thanks for your interest & hope to see you soon!

    I would love to go! But have trouble using high seats due to an old leg injury!

    Ian, I will check on travel and work commitments but provisionally yes!

    Thanks for the interest folks, to all those that are already booked - looking forward to another great weekend!

    MS - would be great to have you along - if only for the 'Lynx effect'! A man who can draw in that many does is useful on a cull shoot!

    Murray, would be great to see you, but due to the terrain we do need to use high-seats. If you fancy something similar, but catering to your gibbon-like climbing ability, just get in touch. At worst, I can put get you out on the ground on a camouflaged quad with a shooting rail. The Fallow will not know the difference!
