Ho no Joe! My stalking self and the working self are two different people and I would never wear my beloved Bugatti in my lorry because the firm I work for are like all firms, squeezing the very life and spirit out of its workers. Unfortunaley I prostitute myself to the system to allow the 'Hunter Gatherer' me to exsist in some small way and pay tribute to the very spirit of what it is to be human and free.

Hi Irish,

What does it say? I havent a clue. Sometimes though its nice to dress as a gentleman of our sport rather than a slack jawed red neck in my real tree pyjamas! I have always worn a flat cap though, I put it down to watching John Wayne in 'The Quiet Man'. ;)

He has yet to wear this famous Bugatti hat in the appropraite area whilst stalking :rolleyes: he may get to use it this year.

So what with Wada's dressed in his littlewoods undies drinking tea, and Mr B with his Bugatti hat it should make for an interesting week of trying to get near some Reds or Sika in Scotland.

Photos will be supplied by either myself or JAYB :lol: :lol:

Hi Rob,
No mate the Bugatti is the flat cap with ear flaps fastened across the top of it. It’s called the Bugatti because at one time it was worn by racing drivers 'back in the day'. ;)

It is a magic hat that makes its wearer irresistible to women. :lol:

What do ya say, me wearing a flat cap and peephole littlewoods thong, might be a bit chilly, but, whatever :eek: :lol: .
It might just distract the deer long enough for Beowulf to get a shot it in :eek:

Good on you Irish!
I will be after a deer stalker hat next time I'm up that way. First of all though I will get the wife a traditional shawl, expensive yes but the quality is superb and second to none. ;)

That's the idea Irish. ;) Talking about tweed, I have a handmade Harris Tweed suit, I have never worn it! :confused: To this day I can't think what I was thinking when I walked into the tailors and got measured up for it. I'll wear it one day when I take my Royal Stag. ;)
