"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.

Also have a search for a shooting syndicate in your area. Even if they don't specialise in your preferred kind of quarry, it's a way to meet and build trust with other shooters and land owners.

What are you wanting to shoot? Air rifles are a good starting point as people find them less scary, they're quiet too, you can build trust and add powder burners. Get insurance. Try horse paddocks / stables and golf courses, once you've got one or two permissions word of mouth and being able to name drop helps get more. Then you'll likely get to a point that you can't take any more ground on and it's important to not take more than you can be effective on as that gets shooters in general a bad name.

Good luck
