Hi from Wicklow

Hello all,
I'm from Wicklow (the hilly county south of Dublin in Ireland). Stalking a few years now and just about lucky enough to manage the time to take the all too ocasional animal. I'm als a keen fly fisher and game shot.

All my stalking to date has been in County Wicklow which is sika capital of Ireland. There are also a few fallow on my home gound. I seem to spend more time getting habitat into shape than stalking lately as I am working on a small neglected mixed plantation which will hopefully pay dividends. It's worth the effort I think as it's only 200 yards from my back door. A couple of years hard work will hopefully provide decades of quality sport.

Hopefully there are a few woodland owners here to share a few tips on the general discussion forum.

Looking forward to chatting!

It would be good to see a few threads on habitat etc.

Thanks for the welcome guys. Neglected to mention I shoot .243, .17hmr & 12ga. I have a black lab 2 years up to my simple standards on pheasants but also keen on deer scent. I wish I'd kept some deer blood in the freezer but lots of time for her to learn.

This forum is a real mine of info.

Off to the general discussion forum with details of my exploits in the woods.
