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.

Catches your eye, doesn't it

Nick came to see us today for some work to be done on a shotgun, as I was unaware of his art and Ovenpaa and Nick started talking about it, they are following eachother online somewhere, I decided to take a look once Nick had left.

As I said, it catches your eye, doesn't it.

Each item takes Nick weeks and weeks and he does scrap them on occasion, as he pointed out today, a 3 legged deer or a Labrador without a tail is not ideal.

The patience...something I certainly do not have...

Each item is mounted with a pin so there is a 3-D effect, the item has to be checked from all angles to make sure it is straight.

After the first I would be pulling my hair out :)

... Nick delivers these by hand as he is yet to find a courier he trusts and even then is wary of bumps and pot holes on the drive to the customer. I think I will stick to guns!
