  7. Hello all. I have recently moved to east Wiltshire. Am looking forward to getting some good tips here, and if I can, offer some in return. Interested in pigeon obviously, but also rabbit, fox and Im also involved in deer management. good shooting to you all !
  8. Hi! Recently acquired my DSC1 licence and looking to take on a few more land permits (preferably in devon) ive been an air rifle shooter since the age of 4 but i graduated to centre fire a few years ago shooting between 100-600 meters. Please, if you know someone or have deer on your own land let me know! Many thanks! Jack
  9. Am pretty sure the shoot i help on is not the only one to have this problem. In recent years on one of the dareas we shoot the deer are becoming a real pain with eating the wheat / kncoking over and damaging feeders. Does anyone have any useful tips on how to prevent this (Shooting the deer is not an option). Also any tips on helping prevent squirel damage would be great (Shooting is an option).

    roe buck 06/08/14

    was out last week stalking but only seen two does around 9pm and no buck. Went out again last night got to the farm for about 8, as me and the dog walk down the field I could see again two does walking towards the woods, I stopped and glassed the rest of the field I then see two more does but no buck. I got the caller out but nothing. I sat and watched the does for 30 minutes and as I was watching them a buck stud up from the long grass. the deer were 200 yards away, the only shot was a neck shot so didn't take the shot. I sat and sat but no shot presented itself. All 5 deer then lay back down. I called with the caller bot nothing. A fox then entered the field this was at 400 yards no shot taken. As time was getting on me and the dog stalk around the field to see if a shot could be taken as they lay under big tree. I got within 106yards and could just see their heads. got caller out again 1 doe got up and walk into the woods. within 5 mins the buck then got up and presented me with a broad side shot. so with that the .270 was off and deer down, left it 10 minutes and job done. Very happy

Sat and was just about to give up then this buck came out save back drop so put cross hair on and pulled the trigger. It ran in woods so left it 20 min and called y mate who was up at different wood to come down with dog just in case. We got down to strike shot and within ten yards of the woods was the deer. Very happy with result.

  14. So at 5.30am on Friday my alarm went off that the day had finally arrived that I was heading over to meet up with Andrew (Elk Hunter on here) for a beginners day in deer stalking. Everything going well until I hit some crappy morning traffic on the M6 but that out the way and managing to make up a little time I was only a couple of minutes late and all was looking good and the rain that I'd seen forecast was no where to be seen with pretty much clear blue skies ... On the way over Andrew gave me an overview of what the day had in store for me and once we arrived kitted up and made our way over to the range giving me the opportunity to check my zeroing out at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Once Andrew was happy we headed over to where the deer were and once they'd started to settle he directed me into the one that I was going to take when the opportunity came. After getting comfy and ready to take the shot (I've no idea how long it was until I took the shot) Andrew gave me the all clear to pull the trigger... Safety off, deep breath, part exhale, point of aim and bang! The deer stumbled a little and Andrew whispered 'reload' - this had completely slipped my mind with all the adrenalin pumping through my body. What a flipping feeling! We waited around 5 minutes and started our approach to the deer. We got there and yep... Definitely dead. After a quick sandwich and a warm drink Andrew talked me through a quick inspection of the deer and what to look for before guiding me through performing the gralloch myself and provided me with no end of useful hints and tips and again talking me through exactly what to look for while doing this. We loaded up the truck and headed down to skin and butcher the carcass - Again Andrew provided me with no end of useful tips and tricks from his huge knowledge on the subject. Once skinned and opened up a little we looked to see where and what had been hit and it was a clean heart shot. He had plenty of patience with me throughout the skinning and butchering All in all a ruddy awesome day and I would definitely recommend Andrew to anyone who is new to shooting deer and even those who are well experienced... We can all learn something new Thanks again to Andrew for getting me hooked on something I'm now going to have to do again and already exploring the options available Iain

  16. I am looking to buy my first rifle and along with it my first scope I have put off buying a rifle for a couple of years for all sorts of reasons but have now decided to take the plunge and I have to admit that as much as i love shooting with rifles i actually don't know a lot about scopes and moderators. I getting a .243 and i would very much appreciate ANY ADVICE ON SCOPES and moderators, with recommendations of different scopes, in different price ranges (above £200) and reasons why. I am looking for a good quality scope that will be versatile for lamping foxes and stalking deer. (around the 4-12 x50 magnification area) I look forward to hearing any advice you have to offer. Many thanks

    Not a bad buck

    Went out just to shoot a couple of targets as off to Scotland next weekend shooting. When got to the farm about 14:30 the sun was shining and there were slots all over so me and the dog went to the top of the hill for 30 min. But as soon as I sat down I seen a buck eating the conifers. So aimed fired and shot this buck.

    3 legged deer

    Went shooting tonight with a mate and his daughter Jessica. I put them in a place that we seen some roe on friday. I then went to top end of wood to put a new salt lick up after 10min I heard the shot. When I got to them I was surprised to see this deer, as we haven't seen it going about, but a good one to take off also was in good nick for just having 3 legs.

    lastnight buck

    Me and a mate went to my locall farm last night for a bit of roe buck shooting, when on way to the farm it was raining really hard got there anx realised I left my coat back home not a good start, got one of steve's fleeces on which is about 3 sizes to big (steve not the smallest of people). Any way I got set up in one field and steve went about 5 fields over where we seen a doe a couple of nights ago. I gave steve a call about 9 as not seen out and was getting a bit cold he then called me back as he could see a doe and a buck in the field he was in and with me not shooting a buck for a bit steve said I should come over and shoot it ( what a friend) I had to get over 5 fields with dog and stuff and when got there I could see the deer watched them for a bit then took aim and shoot the buck again well happy.
  22. First time back out on the rifle after the birth of my daughter two and a half years ago, real excited, praying for a good shoot on the roe deer. 10 minutes out from our destination stalker Steve talking more than watching the road as usual hit a massive pothole and burst the tyre but we plod on to the farm deciding to change the tyre later. On the farm we split up Marcy heads of stalking over the back and we head down into the valley myself and stalker Steve to head into the hot zone for the roe! We got nicely settled in scanning the area constantly for (lesser spotted lately) roe. All of a sudden there they are 2 of them doe's ideal, just popped out in the sunshine lovely I look to get the crosshairs on but I have tree line in the way, adjust position moving to my right to get a better shot, adrenalin up thinking yes!what a morning! as quick as settle back into rifle the damn roe retreated back into the woods and that's it they are gone, stalker Steve urges me to be patient as the only way for them to travel is towards us so we sit tight and with every passing minute it felt more and more that was going to be our only glimpse of them. It's gonna be one of them days! We decide to move after 30 minutes sitting, we track along to where the roe disappeared and had firmly decided that was it for the day when all of a sudden there were two more walking out further up the tree line happy days! We hit the deck and settle in, it feels like a long shot well over 300 yards, safe shot good back stop, I fire and snatch it, missing, damn, damn and double damn, the roe deer bolt and disappear out of view, stalker Steve stating we need to sit tight as they will head back this way, sure enough there they are proud as ever two roe stroll out into the middle of the field, safe shot, aim, quick whistle to get them to stop bang one dead, I roll of the rifle and Steve rolls in, second deer, running, I'm whistling and barking to get its attention it stops and in that moment bang off its feet legs in the air, there's another roe for the pan. Nothing finer, my need to hunt is again reignited, and a wise man once said you cannot predict Mother Nature. How true!
  23. hi i'm looking to book some stalking for this year, Sika,red or fallow. Me and a mate travel to kent around 3 times a year to stalk fallow deer, stalks only cost £120 for full day but when you add up the cost for travelling there and back and then the cost of digs and BEER it turns out not to be that cheap. So looking for some stalking that is a bit closer to me. I have a contact in scotland for sika and was there last year and shot my first sika stag and hind, We will be going back there this year also. All contacts will be appreciated.
