"The Dromia Rule"

Deer Stalking… reliable word of mouth recommendation from someone you know has undertaken such stalking being offered by a specific syndicate is best. Like other walks of life, stalking has its scammers. E.G., make sure there is deer, of the species sought, on the land being made available; that appropriate insurance is in place; that there is recourse for recompense if it all goes wrong. In addition, obtain and understand terms and conditions; consider the implications of allowing a syndicate leader to be a FAC mentor; make sure ‘coaches’ are suitably qualified; consider the quality of deer management, the construction & execution of a shooting plan and safety; determine if the land is over-shot.

If in doubt, contact BASC or similar.

Anyone considered to be a scammer will be banned without warning.

My son shot this deer on Monday, 5 minutes after legal light on the first day of the season! It walked in on us and was taken at about 50 yards.
He used his Remington 700 in .243, which is fitted with a Timney trigger, and he was using factory Remington Cor-Lokt with 100 grain bullets.
We hunt just north of Fisher Branch, in central Manitoba.

Great start to the season, it looks like your season starts a couple of weeks after ours.
