    A few introductions

    Just an idea that came to me, nothing too specific, a little bit of a who am I? Something like this;

    I live and work as a Paramedic in Herefordshire. I'm a farmers son, been stalking for about 12 years.

    Hi Stuart / Blaser,
    Nice one Stuart I was thinking it. I run a agricultural machinery dealership (combines & tractors) in Herefordshire and have stalked for about 13 years.
    Just wondering Stuart dont you do any work in the day either ?

    I am in my mid-50s, a self employed management consultant, grew up in Monmouth but have now lived in the Vale of Clwyd, North East Wales for 18 years. On a clear day I can see fallow grazing the field edges across the vale from my louge window.

    I have owned and used a shotgun since I was 15. I have been shooting rifles since I was 14 and was interested in deer from about the same age, although I didn't put the two interests together and start stalking until about 20 years ago, principally because at that point in time I moved out of the Gwent Police area into a more sensible area and could get my FAC without too much trouble.

    Despite having plenty of fallow close by, stalking is very hard to get and I travel to Herefordshire, Sussex, Bucks, Wiltshire and Devon to stalk roe, fallow, muntjac and reds.

    I also enjoy rough shooting and game fishing and used to be one of the idiots who stood out on the Severn estuary in a gale on a cold January night on the off chance of a shot at duck or geese - I'm too soft for that game now.

    I worked in Saudi Arabia for three years and was lucky enough to be First Mate on a big game fishing boat in my spare time and therefore spent most of my weekends driving the boat on the Red Sea and fishing for marlin, sailfish and tuna for nowt.

    My favourite field sports in order are

    Deer stalking (roe and reds)
    Sea trout fishing at night (I can walk to a salmon and sea trout river)
    Duck flighting on inland ponds
    Trout and grayling fly fishing
    Rough shooting
    Pigeon flighting
    Bass fishing

    I'm in my mid 30's and a Business Development Manager for a company in the south.

    Been shooting for a long time now, picked up my first rifle when I was 13 so have been shooting (Shotguna and rifle) for 21 years now. In terms of stalking I was lucky enough to start stalking 16 years ago and still remember my first sucessful stalk. Was a Orphaned red calf, shot by a loch in Scotland just before dusk.

    Hold DSC level 1 and working towards level two also have attended an interesting course on deer law and liability laid on by Charlie Parks et al.

    Have just sold my beloved motorbike to finance a truck to hall the beasties home in .

    nice idea
    im a 20 year old student. im studying countryside management with the view to become a land agent and rural estate management.

    i have only been stalking for just over 2 years. after a childhood of shooting rabbits with the air rifle and going wildfowling with my father, it was just the natural progression for me. i stalk on an estate in the cotswold which holds fallow roe and muntjac.

    37 work as a property agent. I have stalked for the last 12 years with maybe 1 or 2 paid outings a year, but now have access to 5000 acres in the Cotswolds to stalk over, Fallow, Roe and Muntjack. Have stalked hinds and stags in Scotland (Perthshire, Argyle, and Jura).

    I am a 35 yr old civil servant. Live in Lincolnshire. I have been stalking for 3 years now, last year seemed to be a watershed for me, i shot a lot of stuff. I shoot roe locally and i am getting into some muntjac this year.

    i shoot .243 and .30-06

    also i shoot ducks over the humber, so if anyone wants a flight at duck then give me a shout.

    What sort of range do you shoot these ducks over the Humber at with your 30-06?

    It must be a long retrieve for the dog.

    (couldn't resist)
