    New to the game !!

    Hi all, as i need to introduce myself and my experience in this field- its simple... no experience whatsoever, love the mountains and outdoors but never thought about shooting Deer, but i love venison and good food is not cheap. I decided to go on the DSC1 course and passed this Sunday met some nice people and was suggested to join this site to get some advise.
    I live on Cambs/ Norfolk border and would like advise before even thinking about buying a rifle or applying for my FAC. Please help!!

    Welcome, Doctor!

    I suggest that you start by asking the assembled Masses what they think the best all-round calibre for deer in the UK is.

    [OK, I'm out of here. Bye bye, and good luck!].

    Welcome to the site. A very good place to start indeed.

    My suggestion before you even think about gettig an FAC and subsequent rifle is to get yourself on a paid stalk. There are a lot of guys on here offering paid stalks, most will have a range that you can have a quick go on to make sure you can shoot and then go out for the day. Average price for the day would be about 150, some more, some less. Nearly all will have an "estate rifle" you can use. That way you can have a go at stalking and see what its all about and with any luck whoever you go out with will get you onto a deer.

    I'm sure you'll be hooked, like everyone else on here, in which case you could then think about joining a local rifle club and then applying for your FAC.

    Good luck with it all.

    Regards

    Jim
