Great day out with Jelen

Had an email from Mike at Jelen, askin if I wanted to make up the numbers on a park cull. I jumped at the offer. This was my first time on a cull, and after three unsucessful stalks, the first time I had shot a deer.
There was my self and two other lads with rifles. I was worried that being a newbie, I might end up just watching or being lectured too. This was not the case. I was accomponied by a member of staff who would point out the intended target and tell me when it was safe to take the shot. This removed a lot of my nerves and added to the days enjoyment. I ended up taking four animals. But the learning didn't stop there. I was then shown and instructed how to bleed , grollach and extract the carcass. Then into the larder to prepare and butcher.

I had an absolutely brilliant day, and learnt a great deal. I would not hesitateto recommened Jelen to both novice and experianced stalkers.
This is a big thankyou to Mike and his team.
