Hello everybody,

Quick bit of background, Im a 20 year old who has a DSC level 1 and I've just bought my first .243.

However I have a problem! In September I'm going into the navy as a mine clearance diver, I was planning on doing a BASC cull week on the Isle of Arran, but that has squashed that idea!

So the problem is thus, I have less than three months to shoot my first deer, on a tight budget, before disappearing for several years with the navy.
Does anyone know of any places in Wales that are good for a budget?
Any insider tips on procurement of stalking?

Any advice would be very welcome!

I would talk to Herbert on here who has a good reputation and not too far for you. This time of year is fun, but stalking tends to be a little harder - (a) lots of foliage and (b) little in season - just Roebuck and Muntjac. Wait til August and the choices expand. If you get no joy from him, please PM me and we'll see if we can't sort you out.

Thanks again,

+1 for Herbert, he's based near Leominster with both roe and muntjac. Another option would be Elmer Fudd who is a very decent bloke and has mostly fallow near Monmouth with a good chance at a pricket in August but also a few muntjac there and some roe over near Bristol.
