Many Thanks

I want to come over sometime next year and stalk some of those lovely Irish Sika

No problem - fly into Dublin with your rifle having pre arranged the import paperwork.

Hire a car or minibus between friends - drive 45 minutes south into Wicklow and meet up with John Fenton. Move to a B&B just across the bridge from a lovely little pub serving Guiness as it should be.

Hunt your ass off in an area with the sort of deer numbers you have not seen previously!

Highly recommended.

Enjoy!

Go for it! :)

John used to be known as 'Mr Sika' and did a lot of business with the likes of Diana - the recently insolvent top class hunting outfitter.

If he was still tied in with them, there is a fair chance he will have some spare slots - otherwise, he needs to be booked well in advance.

I went over on a cull package, though trophy stags were available as well as a few wild goats. The grounds are excellent, and if you are proved reliable, he is not above giving you a map of a block and suggesting you hunt it yourself. Conversely, he has some excellent guys working with him as stalkers to ensure you get into the beasts asp.

Open hill stalking, thick pine forest interspersed with rides, boggy valley bottoms - whatever 'your' stalking preference, its there!

One thing that is not in doubt is the sheer volume of deer running around - I have never seen such a concentration of animals. Expect to be taking 2-3 per day.

Great place to go as a party - the pub is stalker friendly, and well used to small mobs of blokes dressed like trees, each with a severe Guinness dehydration problem! :)

Many thanks - I recalled John doing business with a large Scandi hunting organization, but was unsure as to which one.

Very glad to hear he will not have been caught by the collapse of Diana.
