Hi i'm Jonathon . Been trying to get on to forum for a while and now on. a bit about myself. been a keen clay and game shot for about 18 years , shoot a lot of game fairs but getting a bit pricey! had mainly been doing vermin control [rabbits and foxes] with a gamekeeper and friend using an estate rifle. 2 kids under 3 have slowed the clay and game shooting down so thought a change of hours would help! so put in for a fac in august last year and was granted one in march for deer stalking and fox control. went for a T3 varmint in stainless, 243, s+b 8x56, jet z moderator, single set trigger, harris bi pod. went for this set up because my friend has a sako 75 which i have shot and liked but this was slightly cheaper. live in north herefordshire. have found a lot of useful subjects on this forum. my wife is now a computer widow as well as a shooting one!!!!

Hello and welcome,

Do apologise to your missus for us, and you can tell her, if it helps, she is one of many, then run for the, but do make sure you take your rifle :D

i know it well such a lovely village with that beautifull long black and white property i admire every time i pass through , couple of tight bits but that the countryside for you
i also hav heard of a sighting of muntjac just outside of presteigne but never had it confirmed
i hav shot a bit around your area lamping and stalking from radnor forest up through kinnerton and just up the road from you by ammestrey (yatton to be precise ) got some roe there and few fallow too
who do you use for all your shooting supplies? as there are not many around those neck of the woods

where in the country are you from.
all the best
jonathon
