Novice question

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

Apart from air rifles as a kid,   I'm a complete novice when it comes to shooting. 

I've always had a Intrest in stalking. The effort and skill that it takes for a successful hunt is second to none. My question is what are the rules and regulations on booking with an estate, do I need to have a fac to take part ect... 

Thanks for your time

Just ring the estate, and ask, let them know you are a novice, they will run you through it in detail, if they are any good that is , there’s plenty of places that welcome novices, they will take you with the estate rifle, to make sure you are a competent shot, once they are happy, then they will take you for your first stalk,

most stalkers prefer to take out  novices, because then they can tell you, how great they are, and the novices dont know any better LOL

The reason guides like to take novice stalkers out is the look on their faces when they shoot there first deer, its priceless.

Which ever Estate or guide you choose will most likely want you to have a go at a target so you get a feel for the rifle, and give you an idea of where to aim and what to expect.

Take the day for what it is, irrelevant if you shoot something that's a bonus.
