Re: A few photos from my Scotland trip

Ahh thats lovely country..
Well i have specialised my self on long range shooting of roe and red in SCotland, most of my shots are over 300m, and i usualy shoot more than the "normal" hunters i take with me just because i have practiced the ability and have the required equipment. The problem in the UK is that the darn game dealers knock you so much bloody money of the carcas price if thebeast is shot even slightly wrong, and its easy at distances over 300m to be an inch or so out, and an inch will make the difference between getting next to nothing for a carcase or the going rate. More and more i see estate stalkers bieng pressured into taking head and kneck shots only due to this reason, and no way would i encourage shooting at the most movable part of a deers body at much over 250m, the head of a roe is a small small target, its kneck bones or vertabrae is even smaller.
I find that if you have the ability to stalk close (and ive shot deet at bajonet range too) and can pull the long range rabbit out the hat then you will do ok wherever you are, the key as in all things is practice practice practice..
nice looking rifles by the way, you wouldn't catch me carrying that AI up much of a hill though !! goo to see some one hase good taste in scopes..
Pete

Re: A few photos from my Scotland trip

Hi y'all!
Small comment from a woodenshoe lad.
I am a rookie when it comes to hunting, but i have also been to Scotland where i shot 4 roe deer with my sako TRG22. I have also been lucky enough to shoot a 91 kilo SWEIN in Germany, both hunts under the professional Guidance of MR Pete Lincoln, the ugly twat whos comment is above mine.

@Brown Dog, very nice Ferguson rifle indeed, been to Callums shop, and although bloody expensive, very nice rifles. I am very much interested in what the cost have been, in total, for your Hunting Trip in Scotland, and how many deer you shot.
And how did the Acuracy perform, under Hunting conditions? Problably a bit heavy, like the TRG22...great sniper rifle, but not the best piece for hunting?

@ Pete,
hey M8, how you doin?
Been awhile sine we chatted, time for a brew, dont ya think?
I no longer have the TRG, i am now the happy owner of a Parker-Hale with a 28 inch barrel, 1-12 twist, gonna shoot 155 scenars with it. Thing costed me 450 euro's and should do ok as a hunting rifle....so you got any hunting trip lined up?
Talk to you soon,
Marco.

ps; nightforce rulez over S&B, anytime! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Hunting October 2005, a week in the Scottish Borders if you are interested. Did Val tell you i'm getting my weapons manufacturing/dealers licence shortly? started a custom rifle business, gonna give Callum and the rest of em here in Europe some competition. What parker hale do you have?
We had some fun on our trip to Scotland didn't we, its a beautifull country.

Re: A few photos from my Scotland trip

I'm in Northern Germany.
Tooling and equipment i alread have, Plans for a slightly larger lathe are in store (due to some folks perversion for 30" barrels) but 26" i can manage already. otherwise all is present. Got some one working on a web site and just waiting for the authorities to get the paperwork processed.
Pete

Re: A few photos from my Scotland trip

Marco,

Cost was around 100 per day - plus hotel etc.

The AW was no trouble on the hill at all, due entirely to the fact that I had biathlon straps on it -just like wearing a rucksac! (I didn't put it in a slip, just covered the scope and muzzle). I think we tend to get wrapped around the axle a little on gun weight - if you were wearing a 20kg / 44lb rucksac would you notice much if you stuck in an extra 2kgs / 4.4lbs? -thats all the extra weight that the AW represents over more conventional rifles. On the flip side, I certainly did appreciate the extra weight when shivering-piss-wet-through and trying to hold steady!

Pete,
Looking forward to learning more of your new business. Presumably you'll be offering Forces discount?! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Derek,
Enjoying the weather up there? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

pete

sounds good to be able to set up like that. you've now got what would be my second favourite career. a stalker would be my first, but the cash isn't good enough.

brown dog
the weather has been pretty awesome lately. had to bash the missus's micra through foot and a half drifts yesterday to get to work. wind has been wicked to. i built the house though, so i amn't worried about it blowing down....

derek
