Chris Dalton

I come from a farming background in rural South Yorkshire and my love of the countryside and rural pursuits has remained with me to this day.

I was introduced to shooting from an early age and quickly became hooked on the sport My grandfather was a great horticulturalist, another of my interests and I am passionate about sustainability and self- sufficiency, examples of this are that we grow all of own vegetables, keep free range hens and bees.

I was fortunate to be able to continue sporting shooting as I moved around the world as a serving RAF officer. Stalking came later to me – around 30 years ago and with Anne we formed South Ayrshire Stalking in 2006. Our aim has always been to provide a full range of stalking activities; with the major emphasis on promoting ethical deer management principals and to promote the education and training aspects available to all via the Deer Management Qualifications. I keep Bees, have been a DMQ assessor with the British Deer Society and am one of the senior measures with the BDS BASC/ST trophy team.

I am a frequent presenter of The Shooting Show and write a regular column for Shooting Times. I feel honoured to have been awarded the title, ‘UK Professional Stalker of the Year’, for the last 3 years running, made all the more special as it is a public vote. I strongly advocate that we should not shy away from explaining and promoting what we do as stalkers or shooters, this is a conversation we must have as often as we can, we are the true guardians of the countryside along with its many traditions, and we should be rightly proud of that.

Jason is a keen shot with rifles and shotguns. He represents Viking in the field alongside his trusty Ruger American Hunter rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor, HGR gun slings and Leupold Optics. You’ll find him at home both stalking in Ireland and shooting on the moors of Yorkshire – the craic is always guaranteed when you’re out on the peg with Jason.

Scott Mackenzie

I was brought up on a council estate within a large town but always longed for outdoors amongst the hills and woodlands. Little did I know where my journey would take me, from that first day as a YTS Gamekeeper at the tender age of 15 working on a commercial pheasant and partridge shoot to now as Head Gamekeeper Stalker on a Highland estate. My chosen career has given me so many experiences and allowed me to enrich the experience of the outdoors to others.

Joe Pask

Joe is already an outstanding ambassador for shooting sports and has been an MDT supported shooter for the past year, where he’s made a terrific impression on all at Highland Outdoors. He is currently a top Precision Rifle competitor and long-time user of Leupold rifle scopes.

“I’m a big fan of the Mark 5HD, and have one on both of my centrefire competition setups,” he shares. “I trust them entirely and have never been let down by them.”

Joe and his gear have performed exceptionally well in recent years, building an impressive collection of titles and accomplishments from the elite precision shooting circuit: He’s won 2 out of 3 of the PRS UK matches and has recently made the British Team and will be shooting at the 2022 World Championships in France under the GBPRA.

Kayleigh Gray

I didn’t grow up shooting, at one point I used to be a vegetarian. I first got into it when a coach asked me if I’d like to give clay pigeon shooting a go. After my first lesson I was hooked.

A year later I bought my first shotgun (a trusty, old Beretta 682), shot clays most weekends and had further coaching. I then moved onto shooting rabbits with a .22 and 17HMR and have had numerous days out on the pigeons, and few days on peg game shooting.

In the summer of 2017, I shot my first roebuck and have since been out stalking most weekends. Seeing British wildlife in its natural habitat and taking part in country sports has inspired my artwork.

I am passionate about deer management and providing my own source of meat; in the past 2 years I’ve accounted for around 30 roe and 1 fallow and in recent months have started to gain some independence. I have completed my DSC Level 1 and 2 on Doe’s. In the next couple of year’s I’d like to shoot all 6 native deer species and am hoping to tick muntjac off later this year.

Chris Abbott

I was born into a hunting, shooting, fishing family and at the age of three using a Geco 9mm garden gun I shot my first Teal. That little gun is still in my cabinet and my son, now aged three, is currently breaking clays with it.

My involvement in the shooting field has covered just about all aspects of the sport over the years. As a teenager I trapped and helped out at Thimbleby Clay Ground, trained in gamekeeping at Northumberland, shot in numerous FITASC competitions throughout Europe, ran the family game syndicate and of course deer stalking and management. I was also the third generation to head the Hartlepool Wildfowlers and of course deer stalking and management.

My father was an avid deer stalker, often accompanying him I shot my first Roe aged 11 which got me hooked on stalking. At fifteen I had NSCC then my DMQ 1 & 2 when they were first launched.

Deer stalking and Management is my passion and I am proud to now be a professional stalker on numerous parcels of land throughout the country.

I use various equipment depending on what type of shooting I am doing. My kit list is below and in addition to this I also bought the Ruger American, Leupold VX-3i scope, Breda Grizzly and I have a Merkel Speedster (Black & Orange) on order. If I trust and believe in a product then I will buy it!

James Nixon

I started out shooting IPSC about 6 years ago. I was already into a number of different shooting disciplines, from stalking to clay shooting, but I wanted somthing a little more dynamic, challenging and competitive.

My shooting club started to introduce IPSC Shotgun to its members and I was quickly hooked. After 18 months of competing, I shot an international match in Germany and that same year shot at the Central European Shotgun Open (CESO) in Hungary, and have now travelled overseas to shoot every year since.

I have never considered myself as a top shooter, I just really enjoy my sport and put a lot of energy into practicing and competing, to be as good as I can be. I was fortunate enough to compete in the 2018 IPSC World Shotgun Shoot, hosted by the French IPSC Region, which was an amazing experience and an opportunity to meet so many fellow competitors from across the globe and was probably the highlight of my practical shooting career to date.

Deer Bob

I got into shooting through my father and then spent time stalking with a great friend of mine John Brown, who was a founding member of the British Deer Society. We spent a lot of time stalking in North Yorkshire and the South Lakes both for Roe and Red deer and to this day Roe are my favourite deer to hunt.
