    Hare Mask

    I think it's had an ear transplant from a Jack Rabbit along with some unwanted attitude. As I've never seen a hare look aggressive when out in the field...... Good attempt! Andrew.

    The op never said it was sport. There are plenty of guys that would shoot them just to get the time on to gralloch and inspect the carcasses. Sould never knock what someone else does even if you don't agree. Andrew
  5. Had a call late last week from a client asking me if I could remove a stag it had jumped the fence in a moment of madness and had disappeared looking for love. He could be heard calling, so was not to far away. So I headed out first thing walked and glassed the perimeter of as well as the farm land around the park but no stag insight. The stockman gave me a call to say the stag was back. It was obvious that he had jumped back over the 9 foot fence to be with the ladies. Only he wasn't with the ladies, just the cull stags and yearlings. Owner informed me to shoot the stag as if he got out again he may not come back. Asked him if he wanted it left till weekend as I have a novice stalker coming. The answer was No! he could not risk it leaving again. Shame I had to shoot it as it would have been an Awsome first deer for my Beginners Day! Better done this way than having to shoot it after coming into contact with a motor vehicle. Andrew

    I've heard for a coupe of feinds i have in canada that they suffer from static build up. Then you get inaccurate powder throw. Can't beat scales and a powder trickler. Andrew
  7. Thought I would share a good thumbs up for my local police. Living in leicestershire I'm vey lucky that our FAO are probably one of the best in the country. I had decided to go out with the old and upgrade to a new 6.5x55. I did my paper work took it in to the main office and started the search for a new toy. Good god the ink was not even dry and I got an appoligy by phone from the FEO telling me they were a little behind and sorry for the delay. My variation took under two weeks unlike the normal 5 day turn around. It's a shame not all FEO were this efficient. So my ticket is on the table and I'm at a loss for what to buy. Andrew
  8. Morning all I had many a client speak about the FLF so I've come alone to see what the fuss is about. A little about myself as an introduction. I live in leicestershire and have hunted all my life. Roe stalking is my hobby and passion on a lease I have just over the border in Scotland. But enjoy air and full bore shooting when not stalking. I'm very lucky that my job also in partnership with my hobby as I manage 2 large red deer herds and a large game manager for the largest bison herd in the UK. I enjoy this time of year introducing novice shooters and stalkers to deer management on day courses. Great way to meet from the shooting world. I've hunted and worked around the world but you can not beat the shooting in and around the uk. Look forward to engaging with all.
