Looking for any help to get into deer stalking, live in Kent willing to travel, whether it’s shooting or accompanying someone shooting and watching how it’s done all the experience helps
yeah sorry I didn’t really answer ur question properly with my reply and completely agree with u, animal welfare and safety are very important, I’ve been doing mainly rabbit and fox shooting with centrefire and rimfire, currently licensed up to 223 have put in a variation for a 243 with the hope of getting in to stalking, thanks for your help I do appreciate it and will take any advice on boardFOr the sake of others like you who are seeking help to get into stalking let me explain
I can take you stalking no problem but I dont have the land available to me to teach you to shoot
QED its beneficial if people such as your self can outline briefly their experience with a rifle so I can decide if its OK to let you have a go at shooting an animal
The animals welfare (in so far as it deserves a quick and humane death) being my primary concern
Even then its a risk as I have met many who can punch small holes in paper who cant shoot something as significant as a deer.
So my advice to you and others seeking this sort of help is to outline your ability / experience with a rifle and (to some extent more importantly) your history in vermin control or hunting.
As said I have been fortunate enough to be in a position to help a few people, but this is the primary hurdle for me as I am sure it is for other like minded people
