New to stalking - Seeking advice and experience.


New Member
Hi all,

I'm new to the site and new to stalking. I like venison. From a young age I've had a keen passion for the countryside and hunting. Born in Cambridge, raised in Norfolk and now based in Essex with the Army.

I completed my DSC1 in October in Suffolk and looking to progress to DSC2 in time once confident and experienced. I have an open ticket FAC for a .22 and .308/7.62mm. I can shoot anywhere in the UK with the land owners permission. I have a .22 CZ452 for vermin control, but am yet to buy a .308 - I'm looking for opinions and to seek advice on that! I've looked at and held a few variants and so far I like the Sako 85 Hunter the most. The weight and feel just felt right!

Anyway, that's my intro. I'm looking to get involved as much as I can and hopefully pursue this hobby. I'm happy to travel, get my hands dirty and help wherever I can to get some experience. If anyone would like to help me in anyway - it would be greatly appreciated.

Happy stalking,
