Hello everyone. I have just discovered this site through a stalking pal and am suitably impressed. I have been stalking and game and rough shooting in Warwickshire and Worcestershire for more years than I care to remember. I am shoot captain for a small local pheasant/partridge syndicate which was formed 32 years ago. I also manage the deer on a large Warwickshire estate which has high numbers of fallow and muntjac. The roe population is also increasing rapidly and I have taken two very good heads this year which I will be taking up to the C.L.A. game fair at Blenheim for assessment. I use a T.T. Proctor .243 with a Swarovski 6 x 42 scope which I find ideal for all three species. As a day job I have been a book dealer specialising in new and old sporting books for many years and now have a website at www.readcountrybooks.com as well as still selling through the traditional channels. Hope I haven't broken any rules with this little plug! Anyway, while my wife is watching the tennis, my mates are watching the Grand Prix and it is chucking it down outside I may as well spend an hour or two reading all the other forums. Bye for now.
