I have been following this forum for a while now and as I would like to interact, I would like to say hi to everyone and introduce myself. I’m Northamptonshire based now but I hail from Bedfordshire where I ran a game dealer business around the Woburn area. I was fortunate in helping out with the deer management on my own ground adjacent to Ashridge Estate and learnt a lot from many knowledgeable stalkers. My interest has been reignited by visits to family in Eastern Slovakia and the friendships formed with hunters there, so good to see trophies and pelts proudly displayed in many homes. No forum existed when I was stalking, just articles and conversations, so it is great to see such a wide variety of topics under discussion here.
