ayup lads n lasses, ive been reading the posts for some time now and with the wife marching round and round the dining table between contractions i thought id do the selfless thing and enjoy the forum with my first post...
Ive not been stalking long and luckily joined a really good syndicate close to home down south near bournemouth (plenty of sika,fallow,red,roe)...Having just finished my dsc1 and realising i still know bugger all like many i guess that if i could start again i would certainly not be carrying much of the equipment id currently purchased.. hindsight hey..
Ive been target shooting near thirty years with various game,vermin shooting.. ex forces lad going back at fourty two years young missing my hand gun disciplines and slr.. third wife(seems to be a forces thing) just about to have first baby by the sounds of it tho will be my fourth.. hence bushnell on a remmie 710 all in for £500 tho i can group the bugger with the best of em at 100 n 200..
Ive met one or two fellas on here already at various venues and although lacking in stalking experience i hope to post regularly ( whilst nappies need changing preferably )...
Id better be off as i think im wearing thin and some well justified hugs, kisses and support are due..
Hi danny well done on your result pm me mate for my address
Congratulations on a fantastic informative site with a great sense of humour..
regards terry

Hi Terry,
Its nice to see another Ex-Forces chap on here. There are a few of us, although its hard to stalk quietly with the medals 'jingling' isn't it! :lol:

Please don't be shy, get stuck in with the posts. It gets a bit boring otherwise, reading posts from the usual ten or so members. Good luck with the baby. ;)

welcome to the site terry,
it is always good when some one new gets involved, this is a very friendly site with some very knowledgable stalkers on it , just ask and see what happens, as there seems to be some one always there to help, just not sure how many offers of help ,you will get on the nappy changing though :lol:

:D Hi everyone many thanks for the warm and encouraging welcome and your best wishes ..
After a mammoth labour ( it was heart wrenching to see the girl you adore coping ) and with a little help reece was born 11/3/08 at 0425am weighing a respectable eight pounds... Unfortunatly emma and reece remain in hospital because of minor complications.. The midwife, doctors and nurses were amazing truly awesome... i was as white as my good wife was red but thankfully both should be coming home tomorrow... fingers crossed...
I shall be showing emma your post ladystalker as any reasoning that gets you out in the field must be explored so many thanks..
Im looking forward to meeting and wetting the babys head with as many of you as possible so will start the diet after christmas..

Congratulation's mate, glad they are both fit well, now you can relax and have a drink. I'm not sure the fair ladies realise how hard it can be on the menfolk :D :D

Congratulation's, on the new arrival .there are big pro,s to the sleepless nights .

1/ night time tv on sky is ok ,you can usualy watch the re-runs of future weapons without the misses butting in.

2/ 3am pram rides to stop baby crying can also be a dog walking session(mine now looks at me with distane ).

3/ taking baby for car ride at 4am to stop colic .can also be used to drive past your stalking ground to see if everything is ok.

4/being out and watching the sunrise with your new baby just the two of you . will be hard as you have proberly had no sleep for the past 48hrs . but its a magic moment .

my youngest is now 6mts and regulary starting to sleep through , i dont miss the up every 2hrs but glad i went through it .

all the best to you and your family ....neil

Many congratulations, glad to hear mother and baby are fine and doing well. Although it was sometime back now I was at all three of my daughters birth, and also nearby when some of my grandchildren were born. Both are milestones in any mans life.

The nice thing about grandchildren is you only have them part time, and can give them back to their parents when they start playing up :D result.

Congratulations Terry!
Hope to meet you again soon for another try at the deer and maybe even a little wetting of the baby's head.
Best regards to your missus, the new one, the tribe and you too (I got the order right didn't I?)
