1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    Hi all,
    i am still quite new to the sport and i am finding it really hard to get my first permission, i have been out shooting with a good friend and work colleague of mine (duggy) but there wasnt much about so came back empty handed but i learned quite a bit from him, i am fully insured and looking for anyone willing to give me the opportunity to let me come shooting with them in the newcastle area,i am willing to travel. if you need a character reference just inbox duggy.
    Thanks.

    Just keep trying, you'll get your permission. in the mean time, go for walks in the country, try walking sotfly and quiet, look around, try stalking what you see and have a good hour sit down, not moving, just feel like you are blending in with your enviroment, you will see and hear a lot more. These will help you learn and understanding hunting. The shooting is the very last bit and takes the least amount of skill when hunting, getting close is the skill.

    this. go camera hunting for a while for fun. sit and be still, you'll find there's a pace to the natural world around that is much slower and quieter than our normal lives. when you sit and watch, you'll see and hear things you never noticed before. hunting is all about getting close to your quarry. you can't do that with a rifle, only finish the job when you've got there...
