    A little bit of history

    Bonjour,
    I am english but have lived in the Auvergne in France for 30 years. As a boy I started hunting rabbits, pigeons and crows on my uncle's farm with a Diana mod.27 .22 air-rifle and worked up to bigger guns and bigger animals, including wild boar, red stags and roe deer in "battues" in France. About 20 years ago I started stalking isards in the Pyrrenees and later mouflon, red stag (France and Scotland), chamois (Austria), ibex (Kirgistan), wapati (Colorado). I use a M-S 65x57, Ruger #1 7RM, Mauser 66S 8x68s, A-Square Hannibal 416 Rigby (Africa). I have shot many roe deer in battues, but never stalked this elusive animal.

    Welcome Tembo

    I'm sure the Incredible Pine Marten won't be far behind in welcoming you as a fellow Francophile.

    Cheers

    Salut Tembo, et bienvenu! K, I'm not so much a Francophile as just plain French! In fact I'm in France right now and have been making friends with my brother-in-law's hunting chums. You never know where that could lead...
