Thread: A True Friend

  1. #1

    A True Friend

    Around this time last year, I lost my stalking, due to the shoot expansion and a full time keeper coming in. Although I have known this friend for many years and have stalked with him in the past, we only generally meet up on beating days and a once a year visit to the Phoenix meeting at Bisley.
    We spoke of my situation a couple of times and he said I could shoot on the small bit that he has ( never took him up on this as he only gets a couple of Roe a year). Years ago, he had stalking on an estate that he worked on and yesterday I received a Text from him, that goes something like this.
    Friend, *****(the owner) phoned to say that I can have the stalking again.
    I sent back- Wonderful news, I would love to come out with you occasionally.
    Friend replied, "I thought we could share it".
    This estate is beutifully wooded on hills with a valley in the middle. There was a good population of Roe and fallow as occasional visitors.
    He has suggested we have a bit of a Reccie in the next couple of weeks to assess the numbers and locations and make a start in April.

    As my title suggests 'A FRIEND INDEED'.

    Well done a true mate indeed. I wished my stalking friend was like that all he did was s**t on me from a great hight by getting his wallet out and buying it from under me. Still live and learn nice to no there are still a few honest friends out there.
