There will be an exciting new aspect to BASC’s Gamekeepers’ Fair next year called ‘Stalking 2010’ – a deer stalking and management village entirely dedicated to everything you need for stalking or need to know about deer.
BASC Midlands director, Steve Bloomfield, came up with the idea for ‘Stalking 2010’ after realising that there was no one place for stalkers to come to get everything they needed to stalk or for newcomers to find out about stalking.
Steve Bloomfield said: “As a keen stalker myself, I noticed that there wasn’t any one event that offered a focus for stalkers and we wanted to change that. The Gamekeepers’ Fair is the ideal place for Stalking 2010 to take place as it is such a central location with excellent road links. This is further evidence of our commitment to maintaining the focus and quality of this traditional show.“
Stalkers will be able to buy everything from equipment such as rifles, knives and high seats to clothing and footwear. There will also be information stands about stalking schemes, training, stalking estates and letting agents as well as demonstrations about butchery and deer dogs
Stalking 2010 will be situated within the Gamekeepers’ Fair which will take place on 17-18 April 2010 at Catton Park in Derbyshire.
