After being asked many times to hold one of our successful training days in Scotland we are pleased to announce that we can now confirm that we will be holding an Introduction to Deer Tracking Training Day, North of the border in Dumfries & Galloway sometime in the next 6 months.
We just have a few more details to finalise and then we can set an exact date. The venue will be around 15 miles from Newton Stewart and 35 miles from Stranraer for anyone interested incoming over from N. Ireland.
There will be a presentation covering subjects such as equipment and clothing required, training a puppy/novice dog, preparing and storing blood, laying a scent trail, identifying a wound site, reporting types and much more. We will also be working in the forest where every candidate will have the opportunity to be mentored whilst they lay and follow up their own tracks with their own dogs.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Course price will be £125.00 and places will be limited. We would love the cost to be lower but hope you understand that we have to cover the teams travelling expenses, accommodation and training venues.
Please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. We will then contact you with more information as it becomes available. Thank you.
A fairly new clothing company by the name of Shooterking® has been designing and making a range of clothing for shooting and outdoor use and is constantly developing its range of products.
With this in mind I paid them a visit at this years C.L.A. Gamefair to have a look at what they had to offer. I was immediately impressed by not only the quality but the thought and design that has gone into their garments. Looking at their clothing range all the items had features that were not a gimmick, but had serious functionality. The fabrics and other material they use is first rate and designed to withstand the abuse that a working garment can be subject to.
In need of new shirts, one of their items I was drawn to was their 'Free Move Shirt', made from a strong 65% Polyester; 35% Cotton, and with the following features:
Having come away with a bag full of clothing, I decided to wear this shirt the same weekend on a training day in the forest. The shirt immediately felt comfortable when first put on and was warm enough in the early morning temperature. However the the temperature changed later in the day to around 25 degrees C and remembering the openings on the back soon unzipped them to let the air through. This was heaven and having other shirts with this kind of feature I can honestly say Shooterking® have got it sussed when it comes the its effectiveness. Although still warm the shirt was comfortable to wear.
When tracking in a forest environment in hot weather you still need protection, and the strength of the fabric came into its own here, fighting off branches, brambles, bugs and flies. I cannot rate this shirt highly enough and whether tracking, stalking, shooting or fishing this is a great choice, and will certainly be buying more of Shooterking® clothing in the future.
